  • Interesting day out with family, although no real play area to speak of. Plenty to look at and the ticket is valid for a year so can return in the future. Work was ongoing to move some of the flooded boats.
  • A lovely place to visit, with something different to view every time you go. Lots to view and learn and suitable for all ages - rain or shine do to both indoor and outdoor exhibits. Wonderfully interesting with a lovely cafe too. Perfect both as a quick visit or somewhere to spend a few hours.
  • Excellent place for a day out. Cafe serves good food and is very child friendly. Well worth a visit.
  • Staff are great, not a bad cafe. Been going there on and off for few years. Nice and clean
  • Nice place to moor for the night. Had a lovely cream tea in the cafe. More signs around the site would be helpful.

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.
