All reviews big ben queen victoria focal point diamond jubilee photo opportunity iconic landmark centre piece the main shopping street roman fortress east gate street level chester wall closer look high street shopping area piece of history wall walk
We used the Eastgate Clock as a starting point for our circumnavigation of the walls. The Clock itself is in excellent condition and was very popular with the visitors we saw, for photo opportunities, also provided good views of Eastgate Street & Foregate Street.
An example of wonderful Victorian engineering celebrating Queen Victorias Jubilee.. You can use this as a starting point to walk the city walls however I like to start away from here and approach it from the wall. The main shopping areas are below the shops.
