Awesome setting with an array of Roman remains. Having a wander around the 2000 year old settlement was brilliant.

This is another place to visit if you are interested in the Romans in the North of England Plenty of ruins to see and a description of what was where when you are walking around the site

Went with a tourist guide so this made it all the more interesting but it was a great visit. There is plenty to see although all foundations only and it all wants explaining to appreciate it all fully. The location and area is spectacular and...More

We visited Chesters because it was local to where we were staying and we could build the visit into a walk. We walked from our holiday accommodation in Warden along the cycle path to Hexham, (about an hour). Having stopped for tea and cake in...More

What a fantastic Roman site with baths and living accommodation. A great place to learn more about the Roman Empire in North England.

Great little place, in a beautiful location. Learn about old roman life and in barracks and Roman baths- worth a visit if in the area and English heritage member as free entry otherwise £7-8 for an adult to get in.

An amazing location and really good interesting ruins. Overall site is reasonably level but no paths so it's better when the grass is dry. Bath house is really good and has a great view of river. One of the best Roman sites in the area.

Didn't know what to expect but enjoyed a look around. Wish there was more on site to demonstrate how the site would have looked and functioned, not much in the way of info on site. That being said, was good to walk in history's footsteps,...More

This is a very nice site for those interested in the history of the wall. Most interesting is the Museum which has some great monuments. The Roman baths are also very interesting and well preserved. The fort is on the wall so there are parts...More

A bit late replying, but I'd choose Chesters for the reasons given above. As well as being beautiful and sheltered, the site museum is full (and I mean full!) of wonderful sculptures that are worth the visit alone. Another... More
