Special Interest

Chesters Roman Fort is one of the most impressive visitor attractions on Hadrian's Wall and the best preserved Roman cavalary fort in Britain. Built almost 2000 years ago it housed a Roman army garrison who were guarding the nearby bridge across the River Tyne. You can imagine what life would have been like at the Roman Empire’s northern outpost as you wander the officers' quarters, the well-preserved baths and steam room. There is also an extensive collection of Roman items found during the excavation of the Wall.
