About Us

St Mary Without-the-Walls is situated in Handbridge, south of the River Dee, in the historic city of Chester. The present church was built in 1887 to replace the original St Mary’s On-the-Hill, now a heritage centre within the city walls.

St Mary's is only usually open for visitors/private prayer on Tuesdays 10-12, Wednesdays 10-12 and Thursdays 10:45 - 12:00.
