Great example of Roman History


David P, Batemans Bay, Australia
We visited Chesters Fort after visiting Housteads . This is not as spectacular except the fantastic example of the Roman Baths near the River . The Romans were so far ahead of the rest of the world with their Knowhow it was no wonder they ruled over most of the known world . The examples of underfloor heating and sewage systems were brilliant . It is such a pity that since the time of the Romans the remains have been steadily destroyed . Hats off to English Heritage for their efforts to preserve . what is left . Well worth visiting this great example of Roman History

Nice piece of history


pasowine, Paso Robles, California
We had visited Housestead's Fort first so this was a little different. No wall to see, but still a piece of history with interesting educational things to learn. Another example of how much the Romans had done here in Northern England so long ago! There is a nice little cafe and good restrooms here as well. It helps to be an English Heritage member - there are quite a number of Hadrian's Wall English Heritage sites.

Well preserved


ndw78, north east
We visited here after housesteads Roman Fort and in comparison this is well preserved and loved seeing the Roman baths but kind of wish more was uncovered as you know it’s all under the ground Fantastic work done by Mr Clayton and loved the museum of his findings Each area is fenced off for preservation but you are allowed to go down into the ruins through the gates provided Well worth a visit but I did prefer housesteads for the sheer scale of the fort

Definitely worth a visit.


TheeAlice17,
Worth a visit if your in the area. Another big Roman fort to go round. With a cute little tea room. Has a lovely little museum with fascinating items that have been found in and around the area.

Good example of a Roman Fort


tandft, Auckland, New Zealand
Chesters is a great example of how the forts and the wall were a part of the same thing. If you're looking to just see more wall then there are better sites not too far away. We took the free guided tour which was very informative but perhaps 20mins too long for our liking. I would recommend if you have the time too visit both here and Housesteads to get a good overview of both Forts and Wall.
