Chester

Chester is a popular destination for tourists and visitors. It has a number of medieval buildings, although some of the black-and-white buildings within the city centre are actually Victorian restorations. Chester is one of the best preserved walled cities in the British Isles. Apart from a 100-metre (330 ft) section, the listed Grade I walls are almost complete.
The city is approximately 10 miles to the North of Holt.
