This fascinating site along Hadrian's Wall brings to life how the Roman soldiers lived 2,000 years ago in the northern reaches of England. The museum contains an array of carved stones, tools, weapons and jewelry found within the ruins.

We hadn't planned to visit this but after being disappointed elsewhere, we spotted it on the map and decided to give it a go. And what a treat it was! The fort itself is massive with a lovely countryside view of the river. There is an interactive stone rubbing trail for children and adults alike! The fort is well cared... More

Called in as we were passing on the way home. Excellent reception, very friendly people. Marvellous amount of excavations but a pity that you have to walk through grass to see them - no paths. Creates a problem as the grass was wet when we were there and my wife is prone to insect bites so we missed most of... More

Gorgeous location - you walk through the remains down to the bath-house by the river. Lots to see. A particular joy is the site museum which has retained the charm of its original displays: a wealth of Roman sculpture, beautifully presented. So nice to see the objects unfettered by modern 'interpretation' which often dominates and distracts. E-readers now provided to... More

Definitely worth a visit. The site is quite extensive and well presented. Signage is informative though the museum was a little disappointing as it did feel that it was just a collection of labelled stones.

Visited on Wednesday 14th September 2016. We were fascinated by the remains and felt a real connection with history. We were lucky to have a knowledgeable guide which helped a great deal. English Heritage can be commended for their management of the site

This English Heritage place (one of many in the area) presents the Chesters Fort near Hadrians wall really well. Includes barracks, gatehouse, baths etc and a museum with relevant finds presented in it. My 6 yr old enjoyed it and was interested enough to be entertained for an hour. Weather was nice which helps as its nearly all outside except... More

The ruins of this fort were quite interesting, though you have to use your imagination an awful lot. There are information boards, but I feel they could have done a lot better. The bath house is well preserved and of some interest. The museum there is virtually unchanged since it was set up - which tells you a lot. It... More
