Chester is arguably the richest city in Britain for archaeological and architectural treasures preserved to this day from the time of the Roman occupation. A Roman amphitheatre, gardens and bath house, with ongoing excavations, lies just outside the old city's walls. Originally the fortress site of the 20th Roman Legion it was charged with suppressed the uprising of the army led by the warrior queen, Boadicea, the town being known then (c. AD70) as Deva.
On the map you can see the 'Roodee' racecourse, the hotel is situated in the top right hand corner of the course next to the 'City Walls'. You can walk right around the wall in approximately 30 to 40 minutes. It would also take you 15 minutes to walk from the Roodee Racecourse (to the left of the city walls) to the train station (top right of map).

Chester is a city in northwest England, founded as a Roman fortress in the 1st century A.D. It is known for its extensive, well-preserved Roman walls made of local red sandstone. The most distinctive medieval feature of the old city is ‘The Rows’. These are double-level, Tudor-style half-timber buildings housed walkways with a continuous line of balconies with shops at street and first-floor levels. The Rows are unique and were certainly in existence in the 14th century.
The famous ‘City Walls’ extend in a 2 mile circuit and give a vivid reminder of what a medieval fortified town was like. In the Middle Ages, several towers and gates to the walls were built, the most important of these was at Eastgate, crowned with an anachronistic clock commemorating Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee (1897).
