This place is incredible. Admittedly you have to use your imagination but it's not that difficult to see the place as it was. Barracks, stables, a bath house, the commanders comfortable house with it's underfloor central heating, offices, walls and gateways all come to life. The museum is small but fascinating. As for the staff we note that some people... More

Great 3 hours spent on Easter Monday. Staff were lovely and very helpful. We're not history buffs but read every single thing in the museum, which has amazing artefacts. Free parking for visitors and a nice cafe and shop too.

Visited after being to the Corbridge Roman Town. This site is on a larger scale and provides a longer walk. There is a museum after leaving the shop which was full of pottery, stonework, tools, jewellery etc and this should definitely be visited while there. Onto the fort,there is a huge area covered with barracks, commandants house, bath house and... More

The first thing that was immediately apparent was that the staff were very knowledgable and extremely helpful. A fun place to visit and the little people enjoyed it too.

Chesters Roman Fort is a wonderful heritage site and, with a little imagination, gives a fantastic insight to what life was like during Roman times. This fort is huge and quite well preserved and is in a beautiful location on the North Tyne River. The museum is excellent too, displaying many very interesting items. I do however have an issue...

This is an exceptional site for those interested in Roman archaeology. I would highly recommend it, although the museum could be better interpreted..

Chesters is an amazing place, the history that is on display is simply amazing. If you have just a slight interest in our history I urge you to pay a visit to Chesters and all of the other amazing places that stretch along the Roman Wall.

Visiting Chesters Roman Fort (or remains of) can be exceedingly chilly if you choose to go in the middle of February. However, the English Heritage staff were very friendly and gave the children on half term a good insight as to how Roman Soldiers lived (but mainly fought). As I refuse to grow up I was happy to be a... More

We have been here a few times - spotting a red squirrel or two - and it doesn't disappoint if you want Roman history. A good shop and cafe enhance the overall site and museum. Worth combining with other nearby sites on the Wall.
