Chester has long been known as a loyal and ancient city, with a townscape rich in references to royal connections and historic events. The Town Hall was opened by the then Prince of Wales in 1869, the Cathedral was a Benedictine monastery dedicated to the daughter of a Saxon king, and on emerging from Chester Railway Station we immediately see the Queen Hotel with a statue of Queen Victoria above its main entrance.
