Great place to visit, one of our family favourites. Lots of great activities for the kids in the holidays. Take the time to explore the nearby Chesters Bridge Abutment, Black Carts Turret and Temple of Mithras. Well worth the trip.

I was surprised at the cost to go in but well worth it, it is an iconic Roman Fort well worth seeing, just remember there was a large settlement out side of ‘this structure’ the information was well laid out.

Reasonably priced access to a beautiful well preserved Roman fort along Hadrian's Wall. Set in a very picturesque area the site hosts a small museum filled with historical objects. Very interesting and well worth the entry fee.
