Good picture of Roman life in the area of the wall. There was a nice walk to excavated ruins of the fort as well as the bridgehead for a Roman bridge along a scenic portion of the river. Museum had lots of interesting artifacts.

A lesser retlation to the mighty housesteads but no lesser in welcoming and interest. This little gem is tucked away on Hadrian's Wall and run by English heritage. A wonderful passage back to the cavalry that were based on the Wall and a magnificent insight into the way that the soldiers used to live in the informative guide book. There... More

Suprisely this was a very cheap admission price compared to most attractions! This is a must see! Very cool ancient roman ruins in very picturesqe scenery. You can actually walk in, around, and on the ruins as you explore this ancient fort complex.

Chesters is on a lovely site next to the beautiful River North Tyne. Really interesting visit if you can get in between school trips. Obviously very popular as a school outing so there are lots of groups of young children visiting during the week term time. You pay to park but this is refundable if you pay to go in... More

We were honoured to have a really sunny day for this visit but even without the sun it is worth the visit. Well kept area, friendly informative staff, really welcoming. The site itself is very interesting, reasonably accessible - i.e. okay for pushchairs but some areas a bit difficult for wheelchair. Dog friendly which for us is a sheer delight... More

We valued buying the guide book to add the background to the various displays. Very interesting peek into history and for those interested in the Romans, this is a must-see place to visit. The café was being renovated but there was a small hot drink machine and fridge with cold drinks in the shop so all was not lost. Loos... More

Not the largest of the Roman sites in the area but very interesting and well explained. The site is reasonably accessible for all.

Chesters has the best bath house ever, if your interested in Romans it's a must. I really enjoyed the attached museums collection of artefacts too, especially the stones inscibrd by the builders. The site itself has a variety of buildings with some excellent hypocausts and drainage channels. All in all, well worth a visit. The only dissapoitment was the lack... More
