Eastgate is a gate of a former Roman fortress in the city of Chester, England. Eastgate is also known for its clock which is situated on the gate. The present structure is thought to have been built in the 18th century but similar structures on the site date back to Roman times. The present structure forms part of the Chester City Walls. The clock which was added to the gateway was put up in 1899 to commemorate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria.The whole structure is now considered as ‘Grade I’ listed and it is one of the UK’s most photographed landmarks.
