Chester Cathedral began its life as the St Werburgh's Abbey church, which was part of a Benedictine monastery that dates back to 1093. The present church that is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary dates from between the 10th and 15th centuries with some of the original Norman features still visible today despite many modifications over the centuries. There is evidence that the site was used as a place of worship dating back to Roman times.
Following the dissolution of the monasteries under the reign of King Henry VIII this was one of the few religious buildings in England to survive. Instead of it being destroyed it was handed over the city and became the cathedral church of the city following the newly created Diocese of Chester in 1540.
Chester Cathedral is open for visiting daily from 9am until 5pm (Monday to Saturday) and from 1pm until 4pm (Sunday).
Admission charges are:
Adult - £5.00 (6 Euros)
Senior Citizens - £4.00 (5 Euros)

SDC Colour Museum
This is the only museum of colour in the UK. It is divided into two distinct sections. These are entitled the World of Colour and the Colour and Textiles Gallery.
The World of Colour contains various exhibits that explain the properties of colours. There are experiments that show how different colours are perceived by different people and why some people and animals see the same colour completely differently.
The Colour and Textiles Gallery covers the history of colour, tracing it back to the early dyes used by the ancient Egyptians. The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm. Admission is free.
Blackpool's first electric illuminations date back to 1879 when eight arc lamps were used on the promenade to replace some of the town's gas lamps. Around 100,000 people attended this spectacle and in the years that followed Blackpool's illuminations became a regular event.
The Blackpool illuminations now occur annually from the end of August until early November when the lights are on continually throughout the day and night. The 2007 illuminations cost Blackpool City Council £2.4 million to stage.
