So having, almost literally, had to drag my grumpy teenage i-am-not-doing-that-it's-history-boring daughter along, Titus, our lovely tour guide completely disarmed her with some truly dreadful puns and before I know it she's hanging on his every word, volunteering answers and, gasp, learning things.

The Chester Visitor information center is at Town Hall Northgate Street Chester CH1 2HJ. Just walk in and tell them when you would like to book. You meet your soldier right in front.
