About the event

Welcome to the Chester Millennium Festival Trail, laid down in 2000 as part of the city's '2000 years of Building' Millennium Festival.

All 40 buildings on this trail were selected by local people as outstanding examples of Chester's architectural development over two millennia, from Roman times to the present day. They include many well known and much loved buildings. Others are less familar - and may surprise! They'll all contribute to the rich architectural hertiage which makes Chester special among British historic cities.

Each building is celebrated with its own unique waymarker, created by artist Michael Johnson. The complete route is approximately 3 miles (5200m) long and takes about 3 hours. For a shorter tour, the trail can be divided into two routes, covering the southern section (waymarkers 1 - 27) and the northern section (waymarkers 28 - 40).

However you choose to use this trail, you will explore some of the most beautiful architecture in Britain - and possibly discover your own favourite 'millennium building' somewhere along the route.

The trail begins and ends at Chester Town Hall . Look for the waymarkers set into the ground.
