Reminents of Roman influence is still ubiquitous in the city of Chester. The cathedral started out as a Roman basilica, allegedly dedicated to St. Paul and St. Peter. In 1093, a Benedictine monastery was built on the site. During the reign of Henry VIII, it finally became a cathedral of the Church of England. The building is a mixture of Norman and Gothic architecture. Admission to see inside the cathedral costs £4.
Due to our insufficient budget, we decided to give up on touring the inside of the cathedral. Despite knowing that it would be absolutely astounding to see the inside, we weren't that disappointed in the end, because the exterior was just as satisfying.
The day before our trip to Chester, the weather had been horrendous. Thank God there was not a drop of rain on the actual day of our trip. Even though the sun hid itself from time to time, the absence of rain was more than we could have asked for. This explains why some of the photos look extremely sunny, while other look like the typical English weather.
Chester Cathedral is yet another gorgeous building that I find hard to resist taking photos of it. Perhaps that's the reason why I always end up having so many photos in the church/cathedral articles. Every angle seems to be unique. It goes with all the other churches/cathedrals I have seen so far as well. Every corner is encrypted with symbols that only few can decipher.
As the weather was fair, many people were out. Nice weather brings about nice events. We came across a very curious incident in the garden of the cathedral while we were there. However, I choose to reveal it only when the best time arrives. For now, I hope you have enjoyed the scenes of Chester Cathedral.
