A rainy-day look at Chester’s fascinating history.

This is England’s north west. It will rain. Sometimes, it will rain a lot. On these days, trudging around Chester’s outdoor displays of Roman history can feel like a chore, so drag your sopping wet tourist threads to this museum.

It’s not huge, but it houses a carefully-considered collection of pieces illustrating the city’s history. There are other collections detailing Chester’s past, but it’s the Roman stuff you’re probably here for.
