Chester Cathedral

Chester CathedralThere has been a church on this site for over 1,000 years. Originally a Saxon Minster, then rebuilt as a Benedictine Abbey, this magnificent building is a national treasure in the heart of the city and has been the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Chester since 1541.

From Norman arches to gothic columns, spectacular fourteenth century woodcarvings, the medieval shrine of St. Werburgh and spectacular stained glass. The Cloisters and Church form one of the most complete medieval monastic complexes in the country.

Chester Cathedral demonstrates the skills of craftsmen over the centuries and is a place where history has happened.
