Cheshire is packed with historic monuments, from Chester cathedral and castle to a large number of stately homes and grand Tudor half-timber houses. The earliest people to make a real difference by establishing cities like Chester and building superb roads were the Romans, who first arrived in 55BC under Julius Caesar, and later under the emperor Hadrian. It's sometimes difficult to get your head around the sheer time-spans involved and put yourself in their place. Looking at Chester city walls and exploring the museum are all very well, but to really get to grips with the living past you should visit Dewa Roman Experience from your Cheshire hotel.
Cheshire Hotels for Dewa Roman Experience
It's hard to beat Dewa Roman experience when it comes to fun and educational entertainment. Whatever your age you'll have a brilliant time walking around reproduced Roman streets and getting a glimpse of how life used to be lived in Chester for the Roman soldiers and ordinary local people two millennia ago. It was the Romans who founded Chester and they completely transformed the landscape of England, building roads that are still traced by our motorways, and bringing civilisation to these isles. We owe it to them to try and understand how they lived, so pop along from your comfortable Cheshire hotel and see what life was like on one of the front line of the empire.
A Day at Dewa Roman Experience from Cheshire Hotels
Walking the city walls on a guided tour is one of the pleasures of visiting Chester. To do so in the company of a Roman patrol of the 20th Legion in full armour is something else, and it really gives you a glimpse into the distant past, especially when the patrol passes the remains of the old amphitheatre! Dewa Experience is not just about dressing up, however, as it concentrates a wide range of educational resources and is a popular venue for school visits. Have fun while you learn when you visit here from your Cheshire hotel or B&B. The shops and restaurants of the city centre are close by when you've had enough of Latin lessons.
