Chester is a walled city in Cheshire, England, on the River Dee, close to the border with Wales. Chester was founded as a "castrum" or Roman fort with the name Deva Victrix in the reign of the Emperor Vespasian in 79 AD. Chester is one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain. It has a number of medieval buildings, apart from a 100-metre section, the listed Grade I walls are almost complete. The Industrial Revolution brought railways, canals, and new roads to the city, which saw substantial expansion and development - Chester Town Hall and the Grosvenor Museum are examples of Victorian architecture from this period. The major museum in Chester is the Grosvenor Museum which includes a collection of Roman tombstones and an art gallery.
