    Exposure quite cheesy about the Romans, fairground style reconstructions, interactive activities for children very elementary. Honestly, Chester is a beautiful city where a nice walk, then avoid wasting time on this pseudo-Museum.

  • Very overpriced, Do not enter the building for £5.50, did not do the walk but that might be better. Inside is 3 holes, and little else. Not recommend.
  • Had a lovely family day, the roman walk was fantastic
  • Kept the kids amused but it felt a bit tired.
  • Nice place with "scary" beginning (dark, noise, figures) for child.
  • OK if you're interested in archaeology and Romans, but to promote it as an 'experience' is probably a bit on the ambitious side. It probably only takes half an hour to get through the building and £5.50 per adult makes it a bit on the expensive side, especially for what is essentially a few holes in the ground with a roof over the top, with a couple of displays thrown in. Perhaps this seems a little on the harsh side, but not my best place to visit. In mitigation, at least the staff were friendly.

The selection of hotels runs the gamut from family-run operations to luxury big-name brands, known for offering spacious rooms upstairs and Michelin-rated cuisine downstairs.
