Chester Cathedral is a truly remarkable building, with a history spanning almost two thousand years.
According to legend, a prehistoric Druid temple existed on this site, which was succeeded by a Roman temple dedicated to Apollo.
When Christianity became the state religion of Rome in the fourth century AD, the pagan temple may have become a Christian church.
Now holding regular services and events, the architectural beauty of the cathedral has become an iconic part of Chester.
