Worth it for the bath house


christel, Seaford, United Kingdom
It is hard to imagine how 500 soldiers and their horses lived in these barracks, I kept imagining the smell! The remains give a good idea of how the fort was laid out but the bath house was really impressive. There is a small tea room but we did not have time to try it. The votive offering to the gods in the museum was a fun idea as well

Great for history lovers

The remains of the Roman fort at Chester’s and the story behind its discovery is really interesting. You can wander round at your own pace or join a free tour at certain times. There are some fantastic archeological finds on display in the museum. Seeing parts of Hadrian’s wall from the site give you a greater understanding of how the area looked during the Roman occupation.

Good spot on Hadrians wall

If you want to see the wall its probably best to come here as you can see a good layout of that was the Roman fault and the scale of the occupation of the Romans - worth a quick visit

I found the archeological remains interesting.


Dolemite600, Leamington Spa, United Kingdom
I was walking Hadrian's Wall and the trail took me past this on the way to my accommodation for the night. So that worked out really well. Activities for younger visitors. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Being interested in archeology and Roman mythology, I found the under cover museum bit very interesting. The remains of the buildings were concisely described.

A very worthwhile visit


janetwakefield58, County Durham, United Kingdom
Having recently subscribed to a years subscription with English Heritage. This was our first outing We were welcomed by lovely friendly informative staff We set about our tour. Starting with the Museum which is packed with artifices. We then visited the cafe. A lovely cup of tea. Our granddaughter polished off a scone with butter jam and clotted cream washed down by a hot chocolate. Then our exploration began. Armed with crayon and paper we began to visit all the different parts of the site. Ready for our “rubbings” which is a great way to keep the interest of a 6 year old as we had to have a right old mooch to find “the hidden rubbings” The site is massive and if you have mobility problems would be a challenge. Having said that it’s well signposted and informative Well worth a visit
