Great tour guide.


TerraIncognito, Nottingham, England
An extensive archaeological site, with a quirky but excellent museum, with great exhibits & information. The free tour of the site was brilliant, with a great English Heritage guide, who was full of facts about the site & history, presented in an entertaining manner - highly recommended.

Well preserved roman ruin


Tony P, Leeds, United Kingdom
Driving up A1 beyond Newcastle my seven year old daughter spotted a sign for Hadrian's Wall and suddenly became very excited. We detoured towards the wall, hoping she wouldn't be disappointed to find out it was just an old wall. On the to find a suitable site to visit we were about to pass Chesters Roman Fort so stopped here on the way. Having just missed a tour by a few minutes we decided to make our own way around, starting with the well stocked museum. Heading outside to the fort itself, there's several parts of the fort spread across a decent sized patch of field, each with informative signage to help you understand what you were seeing and where you were standing. Having visited over Easter 2018 the ground was still very wet from the lingering winter, and quite boggy in places, which made getting around the entire site less than ideal. Although it's certainly somewhere we'd like to go back to later in the summer where my children will be able to better explore the site with dry feet and hopefully catch the tour!

Better preserved archaeology than Housesteads


Tetenterre, New Forest National Park Hampshire, United Kingdom
Very interesting to see the museum and the artists' reconstructions and realise how like us people were 2000 years ago. Most of the buildings have been razed to floor level, but this means you can still see hypocausts, etc. The bath area was particularly interesting. Was nice to have the car-parking refunded when we bought admission tickets.

great site, even better if you can catch a guided tour with neil


Mark G, London, United Kingdom
another great site to explore, we were lucky enough to have a fantastic tour guide (neil) who brought the site to life. But you could explore on your own with the guidebook
