What is it in Chester that makes history come to life?

Chester was founded in Roman times and is the only place in England where you can walk around the complete Roman city walls, including going over a number of old city gates. The Rows in the centre of the city are unique mediaeval shopping streets on two levels and also have distinctive black and white fronts. With an old cathedral and plenty of other nooks and crannies to explore, it really is a beautiful city.

Didn't like that most of the animals could only be viewed behind glass. The red ape viewing gallery was very claustrophobic and unnecessary. Confusing layout even with the map.
