Went here on a windy, showery day in November it was interesting with lots of little areas to visit, don't miss the bath house out the back down by the river but be careful as the grassy bank can be slippery in the wet. The little museum was interesting but could do with slightly clearer labelling of display cabinets. Also... More

We visited this fort after Housesteads. Whilst access to Housesteads was free with national trust membership we had to pay (English heritage) to visit Chesters. Given the proximity of the two sites and Vindolnda (owned by another group) it would seem sensible to me to have a ticket which would allow access to all of the sites. Without this it... More

Didn't have very long to stop here but had enough time to see the ruins and in the museum itself. Very well laid out displays gave for a good experience and even after a long day exploring our 4 year old was interested to see some of the reliefs, especially Mars Outside was starting to get dark but we could...

We really enjoyed our trip to Chesters Roman Fort. We joined a guided tour which was very informative. The guide was appropriately called Adrian! He was very knowledgeable and knew a lot about the ruins and the artefacts in the museum. He was also mindful that we had a wheelchair user with us. Unfortunately this restricted what we could all...

This isn't the most exciting of the roman sites on Hadrian's wall but it is interesting and there is enough to see. The cafe is nice , good for warming soup on a cold wet day. The museum is a bit dry, it would not hold a child's interest. I'm glad we went as it completed a list of roman... More

I have visited lots of Roman Sites all over Britain and l wonder sometimes why people go abroad to see things when there is so many things at home that are fascinating. This is a small professionally run attraction, the Museum is excellent and the National Trust have done this place justice and the we owe them and the Clayton... More

A very interesting and brilliantly preserved piece of history that shouldn't be missed. This area is full of Hadrian history and nearby Hexham and Corbridge are well worth visiting.
