Dewa Roman Experience

Dewa Roman Experience

Occupying a site at the heart of one of the largest legionary fortresses in Roman Britain, the Dewa Roman Experience has something to offer visitors of all ages.

Your visit begins in the dark hold of a Roman Galley as the oars master navigates you to the gatehouse of the Fortress of Deva. Atmospheric reconstructions filled with sights, sounds and smells help you to experience, first hand, Chester 2000 years ago.

Archaeological excavations, left open for public viewing, give a unique view of the Roman, Saxon and Medieval remains lying beneath the city of Chester. Artefacts unearthed from the digs are on display in the onsite museum alongside a fascinating collection of artefacts from the wider Roman Empire and an award winning hands-on activity room will keep younger visitors entertained.
