Chester, England, United Kingdom

The University of Chester is located in Chester, England—in the northwestern part of the country near the England-Wales border. Chester has the most complete ancient city walls, the oldest racecourse, and the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain. It also has a 1000 year old Cathedral with Europe's finest example of medieval carvings. The 700 year old Rows Galleries provides lots of shopping. Chester has an oceanic climate which generally features cool summers and mild winters, with a lot of rainfall. If you want to travel outside of Chester, you can quickly hop a train to large cities in England such as London, Liverpool or Manchester, or go even further and take a flight to Ireland.
