Visited these gardens in passing after stepping down from the roman walls. The gardens are peaceful and very well maintained. When I visited, part of the access was restricted due to maintenance but they are a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Chester

Visited with the The Arts Society Tarporley. Lots of interesting pictures accompanied by an excellent guide from the museum. Also a good film of the very beginnings of Chester.

We passed through the Chester Roman Gardens on our way to the walk walk. The site is quite small as Roman ruins go, but is authentic anyway. I really liked the mosaics on the path. It’s amazing that they are just laying there. I wouldn’t...More

This is a very small example of a Roman bath house and surrounding garden. It is squeezed in between buildings and would originally been situated just outside of the city wall at Northgate. There is relatively little left to fully appreciate and the gardens themselves...More

Can be combined with the nearby Amphitheatre for a pleasant stroll to or from the Dee.. Some Roman ruins within the well maintained and attractive gardens. Lots of grey squirrels running around, too.
