Chester is a local government district in Cheshire, North West England, with the status of a city.

Apart from Chester itself, the district covers a large rural area. Other settlements include Malpas and Tarvin.

The district was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by the merger of the the existing city and county borough of Chester with the Chester Rural District and Tarvin Rural District.
