Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral has a rich and fascinating heritage as an ancient abbey and the largest venue in Chester city for orchestral performances, concerts and charitable fundraisers.

The entire cathedral is within a Conservation Area as the history behind it dates back to prehistoric times. Stories say that a Roman temple dedicated to Apollo stood on the site before the state religion of Rome turned to Christanity when the templeโ€šย will have become a church.

Restoration work was undertaken in the 1800’s and was continued into the twentieth century: the external bell tower was opened in 1975 while the Song School was completed as recently as 2005.

Free entrance to such a magnificent building makes Chester Cathedral a must see attraction while seeingโ€šย the local area as part of your visit to Carden Park hotel.
