Not as good as other sites.

We found this rather bleak and less inspiring than Vindolanda. The entrance is expensive for self guided visitors.

Interesting site

Chesters roman fort includes a large number of old roman ruins and some small bits of the Wall. There is plenty of information on the site. The site includes a coffe shop and teh Clayton museum that has lots of roman artifacts and information on John Clayton who rescued much of Hadrian's Wall and associated forts and mile castles etc. Situation next to the North Tyne in lovely country side.

I enjoyed my experience at Chesters Fort, It opened my eyes as to how the day to day running of the fort went on. The ruins are well preserved and looked after and the information easy to understand. There is a museum on site with plenty of artifacts and relics very interesting worth a visit.

Sun made it!

We called in today and really enjoyed our time wandering around, there are plenty of notice boards about to explain the layout. Fascinating facts and an interesting layout, the cafe was a nice addition on a hot sunny day as well. We always enjoy English Heritage sites as most will allow dogs on leads, a must for us!

Just loved our visit.

The whole site is lot bigger than we expected & there is lot to see. It is set in an absolutely beautiful spot next to the River Tyne. We particularly liked the ruined remains of the old Roman Bath house, which we simply outstanding. There was also sufficient information available around the site, to give you a good impression of what the site looked like & how it functioned. There is also a great museum, which had a lot of relics & information about the period & the people who excavated the various items contained within it. As a final note the English Heritage staff were extremely welcoming & most helpful during our visit.
