Brother Lance swears by prayer and leeches....

But as a back up, we've invested in a new defib for anyone in Chester who may need it.

A lot of money for something that we hope is never taken out the box, but worth every penny.

We may not be open yet (we soon will be) but we didn't want the city to be without its famous Roman Soldiers marching through the city from Deva so we have launched Roman Walking Tours from July to September for only £5 pp (places need to be booked in advance)

Enjoy a walking tour with a Roman Soldier seeing all the historic sights of the City. The tour will last approx 1 hour.

Please meet your Roman Soldier at the entrance of Sick To Death - The Gory Story of Medicine - St Michael's Church, Bridge St, CH1 1NW.

The Tour - The tour is conducted by a fully equipped Roman soldier in period costume. The route runs clockwise around the centre of Chester ( Pierpoint Lane, Bridge Street, The Cross, Northgate Street, Eastgate Street and The Amphitheatre).

The tour covers the major buildings of the fortress passed on route and includes a description of the fortress and the civilian settlements outside the walls.
The history of Roman Chester is broadly covered form the arrival of Roman armies ( c.48) to the collapse of the Roman provinces of Britannia in the middle of the fifth century CE.

We've only been open a month but we've already made a big impression as the place to go whilst having a day out in the city.
Only £3.50 for children. £6 for adults.
