Great for dogs


Alisoncicero, Somerset, United Kingdom
We visited Chesters this week (July 18) Having been initially worried we would not be able to take our dogs in, we were able to walk around the site with them on the lead and they were even offered treats by a lovely man from the shop. Water bowls were full and there was a shady place to sit. Fantastic fort and loved the museum. Thank you!

not to be missed


KMc528789, Bury, United Kingdom
We have visited Chesters before but returned here to watch the demonstration of Roman horsemanship, what a great added attraction to an already fascinating site. The display about the Roman cavalry and related updated information boards with interesting detail about the care and feeding of the horses were well presented. Good cafe, with lovely cakes and staff.

Amazing


Moonraker71, Caterham, United Kingdom
This must be the best preserved Roman ruins in the UK What an amazing collection of roman stone artefacts in a small building collected during the Victorian period by one man. To think these ruins were found when drainage was being installed in the Victoria period. Well worth a visit. Just a shame the bridge isn't there anymore

Great Roman site


Ian K, Alnwick, United Kingdom
This a very well laid-out example of how the Romans live in Britain. Well signposted and marked out, there is a really good trail for children to follow as well. Not unduly difficult for walking.

A very interesting Site in a delightful setting.


Pete D, Teignmouth, United Kingdom
We spent a very interesting and relaxing afternoon at Chesters,it occupies a delightful setting beside the River North Tyne.Everything is explained in the very clear guide book. There is also a Museum and a Tea Room with picnic tables outside for fine weather days.
