Chester Tours

Chris Rowland

A History graduate with links to Chester for over 25 years, I’m passionate about telling the story of the city in the actual places where its inhabitants lived, worked, loved and worshipped over its 2000 year history. 

I love taking visitors and residents on entertaining and informative walking tours through the streets and around the walls of the ancient city of Chester, telling the stories of its inhabitants and revealing its history from its Roman origins through to the present day.

I’m married to an Italian and spent 10 years living in Rome, so I’m able to offer tours in both English and Italian.
