Roman Gardens

The Roman Gardens are located just outside the city walls near the Newgate and Chester Amphitheatre.  It is free to get in.  The Roman gardens stretch to the River and are next to the city walls opposite the Amphitheatre and Souters Lane.

Named after a collection of finely carved building fragments from the Roman legionary fortress of Deva. They include pieces from some of the most important military buildings, including the main baths and the legionary headquarters. None of the building fragments originally came from the site, since the Gardens lie just outside the Roman fortress.

The popular open air cinema season Moonlight Flicks has been hosted in the Roman Gardens since 2011.
