What is Sick to Death?

Sick to Death is a brand new family attraction set in the historic Water Tower on Chester City Walls. It explores the gory story of diseases, doctors and dying in the medieval world with a balance of hands on fun, amazing museum artefacts and epic science. We make learning and fun contagious.

There’s space to picnic in our herb garden on a medieval crenellated terrace, and a chance to see a fully restored Victorian Camera Obscura. All of this is packed into two 700-year-old towers on the world famous walls of Chester.
