Chester Castle is in the city of Chester, Cheshire, England. It is sited at the southwest extremity of the area bounded by the city walls. The castle stands on an eminence overlooking the River Dee. In the castle complex are the remaining parts of the medieval castle together with the neoclassical buildings designed by Thomas Harrison which were built between 1788 and 1813. Parts of the neoclassical buildings are used today as Crown Courts and as a military museum. The museum and the medieval remains are a tourist attraction.

Chester Castle is the HQ of my old Regiment the 22nd Cheshire Regiment, the museum is really great and is run by David one of our Veteran Regimental Brothers, definitely a must visit.
Another nice castle from the 11th century. For me it was the highlight of the trip when travelling around the UK, back in 2001, to see all these old castles and fortifications everywhere in diffrent designs and sizes. Many still in good condition and maintained, both small once and other massive.
This is a wonderful city. With many great places! This was great walking along the wall. So peaceful and nice...
Really intresting will be great once its fully done up
Like to score more .... but it has been closed on our last 2 visits...... so check before you visit!
Looked great from the outside, but as described on the website- entry is only available via pre booked tours. Without this it's best viewed from a walk along the city wall.
Couldn't get inside, as it apparently closes down for the winter. We got a view of the outside, but it wasn't quite the same.
