Chester Roman Gardens

Learn about the legionary Roman fortress of Deva Victrix in this scenic park dotted with ancient Roman relics within the historic city walls.

The Chester Roman Gardens are a scenic park with a collection of historical remnants from a past empire. The gardens contain preserved fragments of Roman buildings alongside elegant displays of trees and plants. Inspect the intriguing archeological remnants to imagine life in this region almost 2,000 years ago

Relax with a book on a patch of grass and draw inspiration from the park’s intriguing relics, which date back to around A.D. 70. You’ll see parts of columns from a Roman gymnasium and remnants of the carved roof of the Deva Victrix fortress.

Among the highlights are the remaining columns of the ancient Roman baths, which used advanced technology to heat water brought from an aqueduct. Marvel at the ingenious hypocaust that generated underground heating for the Romans. Informative plaques shed further light on the many artifacts that decorate the park.

Visit the park as a part of your tour of the Chester City Walls, a well-preserved 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) circuit that surrounds the inner city. Part of the wall runs through the garden. Check out the marks that show where the wall was hit by cannon fire, when parliamentary troops besieged the city during the 17th-century Civil War.

The Chester Roman Gardens are open daily and free to enter. The park is located by the southeastern part of the Chester City Walls, to the north of the River Dee. Take a bus to one of the stops on the adjacent highway in this central part of the city. Visit the nearby highlights of Grosvenor Park, the Chester Roman Amphitheatre and the Wesley Church Centre.
