Roman Chester

From:£170

Summary

Deva Victrix, modern-day Chester, was one of the three permanent legionary fortresses of Roman Britain. It is characterised by unique and anomalous buildings, and archaeologists still puzzle over whether these could have been built with rather a greater intended status in mind.

Discover artefacts in the Grosvenor Museum and enjoy a walking tour in this historic British city.
