A good way to spend an hour or so. Random mix of exhibits from the interesting on Roman graves to the random in the Georgian house. Reception staff not overly attentive but hey, it's free!

This park is a nice distraction from busy Chester city centre. There is plenty of space to sit and relax, with a cafe for a fuel stop!
