  • 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.

Where to stay in Chester

Chester is not only steeped in Roman history, but also packed with a wide range of modern lodging options. 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. Most of Chester's finest hotels are located within the diminutive city center, which makes them an ideal base for exploring everything this urban area has to offer. A wider variety of less expensive options, including cozy B&Bs and traditional inns, is located a short walk from the town center.
