Abroad Chronicles, V: CHESTER

Unfortunately, Chester is my least favorite place I've been so far - and it was still a great city! Perhaps not worth an entire day trip, but I'm glad I went and saw what I did and got to experience the history of it all. Also, traveling there and back was awful, and our second train home was packed with Stoke-on-Trent football fans drunkenly singing, chanting and shouting. What a horrible, horrible experience that was.

In Chester, we went to the Cathedral, explored the city centre, and took a walk around the city walls, which were cool enough and provided a great view of the city and surrounding areas. I think the Cathedral was my favorite part, and I think that seeing old churches will continue to be one of my favorite things about traveling through Europe.

The Cathedral had an exhibit dedicated to C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

I hope you enjoy these photos! It was a beautiful (if brisk) day to explore this old city.
