“EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Chesters Roman Fort is well worth visiting. The ruins are interesting and there are a number of fine exhibits worth looking at.

“Evocative and atmospheric”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

It was a wild and windy day when we visisted the site but it only lent itself to the atmosphere of being on the very edge of the Roman Empire. There is loads to see here, you could happily spend two hours or more looking around the site. It has a nice little gift shop with friendly helpful staff, it also has a very nice little tea/coffee shop too. Which was very welcome after a tour of the site. Refreshments were reasonably priced and the lemon iced cake we had was delicious. Definately worth a visit.

“Fort, Museum and Bath house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

A good museum, with lots of stone artefacts from various places along Hadrians Wall, the remains of the fort, plus, down near the River North Tyne a relatively well preserved bath house make for an interesting visit.

“Highly informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Well preserved ruins on the banks of the Tyne. The museum is interesting, but not a match for the museum at Vindolanda

“Emotional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Not as well preserved as some ruins but like most Roman remains this place has a very emotional feel to it. Stand still on a quiet day and you can almost hear the soldiers complaining about the weather.
