Five Ways to Explore Historic Chester with Roman Tours

Budding historians based in Chester or visiting the city will know its strong connections to the past. Steeped in both Roman and medieval history, the city has prominent sites to see and stories to share. Perhaps one of the most engaging ways to experience Chester in times gone by is through the dedication of the award-winning attraction, Roman Tours.

Committed to illuminating and inspiring people with a passion to learn about Chester’s historic origins, Roman Tours offers guided tours led by authentically costumed soldiers from both Roman and Medieval times. With an understanding that everyone likes to learn and explore in their own way, the expert tour company provides a wealth of options to choose from.

Those seeking fresh air and an informative excursion can embark on Roman and medieval walking tours to step back in time 2,000 years or revisit Chester of 1403 in the Middle Ages. Whatever the weather, tours are led by a full-time Roman Legionary or a medieval soldier.

Educational tours are also accessible via the company’s partners, Chester’s Grosvenor Museum. However, for those less mobile or as an indoor option for schools, Roman Tours also offers virtual sessions as a convenient alternative to its successful education sessions.

Finally, for a more visceral opportunity, the Roman Fort Experience is not to be missed. Guests can smell, see and touch what life with the Roman Army was like in this immersive activity.
