About

Taking history off the page and breathing life into it - let us show you a perspective on history that perhaps you haven't considered before.


Touring Chester with a real Roman and enjoy a light-hearted journey through the Roman heritage of Chester.


For visitors, families and people who like something fresh, interesting, factual and fun.


Bespoke tours available with a real Roman, for your family or group on a light-hearted journey through the Roman heritage of Chester. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours and can be provided at any time of the year.


We provide, free of charge, an exhibit of the living room of a Roman centurion who lived at Chester (Dewa Victrix) which it is based on an actual archaeological find at Chester. You will find a Roman character on duty here most days, along with some of the very latest information about excavations and finds of the Roman period in Chester.


You can also get information on guided tours from knowledgeable historical characters.


Let us show you the hidden pieces of our past beneath the heart of Chester.


It is possible to sign up for duty with the Dewa Victrix Guard (period military display team).
