A place to relax on Hadrian's Wall for both Roman and modern visitors, Chesters is home to a spectacular Roman Bathhouse.
The tranquil riverside spa on the banks of the North Tyne would have been a relaxing and social environment for the weary soldiers. The complex of rooms offered soldiers hot, cold and steam baths as well as a changing room-cum-clubhouse.
Bring a picnic and enjoy the wonderful views from the site of the bathhouse.
Pick up a Chesters Fort takeover trail sheet from the admissions team and get ready for a Roman adventure. The Emperor has ordered you to run the fort, choose a character and use your trail to pick up tips to help you with your new job. Will you be the Commander, a messenger, a musician or a guard?
Stop off at the museum along the way to inspire your inner archaeologist, pack a picnic to eat by the river and run wild amongst the ruins. Enjoy family activities during the school holidays too.
