Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral

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) Child (under 16) - £2.50 (3 Euros) Concessions - £4.00 (5 Euros)
