Chester Pepper Street
From atmospheric Roman ruins, to Tudor buildings that house 21st century shops, Chester is an eclectic mix of the historic and the contemporary. By day, the town is packed with visitors, shoppers and businessmen. By night, its artistic community lights up and you’ll find live music venues, comedy gigs and the Gateway Theatre offering world-class drama. There are plenty of places to eat if you’re on a special night out and, with the Chester Pepper Street NCP located, slap-bang in the middle of some the town’s most popular areas, you won’t have far to walk to experience the best of Chester.
Chester Roman Gardens Parking
Chester is a beautiful town, with plenty of remnants from its time under Roman rule. The Roman Gardens were opened in the 1950s and, against a beautiful backdrop of wonderfully-maintained parkland, you can see the remains of the legionary fortress of Deva. The City Wall still runs through the gardens and bears the scars of later battles, including the Civil War of 1645. There are also the ruins of Roman baths, a reconstruction of Roman under-floor heating systems and a number of ancient columns. With the Colchester Pepper Street NCP only a few hundred yards away, it’ll take you two minutes’ walk to step back 2,000 years.
Chester Roman Amphitheatre Parking
Chester’s Roman Amphitheatre, located close to the banks of the River Dee, is the largest of its kind in Britain. Just four minutes from the Chester Pepper Street NCP, it wasn’t just used for entertainment purposes; this amphitheatre was also an important military training ground. Uncovered in the 1950s, the amphitheatre has been carefully excavated and among the more recent finds, a guided tour will show you what’s left of the formidably-named Temple of Nemesis.
Pepper Street Shopping Parking
While Bridge Street is where you’ll find the independent boutiques, if you’re looking for the big-name brands, then Pepper Street is the place to flex your bargain-hunting muscles. A more contemporary part of Chester, Pepper Street can be very busy, making parking in Chester tricky. However, with the facility to pre-book a space at the Chester Pepper Street NCP, you can beat the crowds and be in your favourite shops in as little as two minutes.
