The Church of St John the Baptist, Chester is a Grade I Listed building with the ruined remains of parts of the former chapels being a scheduled ancient monument. It is open for both services and sightseeing.
It was the Cathedral and Collegiate Church of the City of Chester from 1075 until the Reformation in 1541 when the College was dissolved and the Bishops Seat (Cathedra) first set up here after the Reformation was transferred to the dissolved Abbey of St Werburgh, which was in better condition and had not suffered quite the same rigorous attention of the King’s Commissioners.
No easily accessible wifi. No smoking.
Open 10am-4pm daily (but closed for sightseeing during church services, please check the website for any late changes). Admission is free but visitors are asked to make a donation towards the upkeep of the church.
Advance booking is not required.
Located to the south east of the city centre at the junction of Little St John Street and Vicar's Lane.
