Child friendly

Just over 20 minutes’ drive away, the Roman Gardens at Chester are just outside the city walls near the Newgate and the Roman Amphitheatre. The gardens were constructed in the 1949 to display the building fragments from the Roman legionary fortress of Deva, including pieces from some of the most important military buildings, the main baths and the legionary headquarters and general artifacts found throughout the city. The project formed part of Chester’s contribution to the 1951 Festival of Britain.The gardens were remodeled in 2000 to provide access to the River Dee.
