The Roman Gardens



The Roman Gardens are located outside the City Walls to the South East of the City and form part of the popular tourist route around the Town were created in the 1950s to display finely carved building fragments from the Roman legionary fortress of Deva.

The gardens contain Roman columns and a "hypocaust" or underfloor heating system. Today it is less a Roman archaeology attraction than a quiet green space in the city centre. It makes a nice stopping off place if you are walking the old city walls of Chester.

The gardens were remodeled in 2000 to provide access to the River Dee. Interpretive panels tell the story of Roman Chester and the garden site.
