Founded as a Roman fortress in the 1st century A.D by a Roman legion, Chester is one of the most interesting medieval cities in England. It is also one of the best-preserved walled cities in the country having 2 miles of its extensive Roman walls made of local red sandstone city walls intact. In the old city, the Rows is a shopping district distinguished by Tudor-style half-timber buildings. A Roman amphitheatre, with ongoing excavations, lies just outside the old city's walls. One of the attractions is the Grosvenor Museum, which contains exhibitions about the city's Roman past and a reconstructed Georgian house. Numerous pubs and wine bars populate the city, some of which are medieval and it also has night-clubs.
