Lovely setting


George H, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
This was my second visit to this site. It is set on the banks of the River Tyne in a peaceful meadow. It's not as busy as some other Roman sites but ruins are interesting and picturesque.

Clever Romans


FionaT938, Aylesbury, United Kingdom
We spent much longer visiting Chesters than we had anticipated. The museum isn't particularly big but has loads of artefacts. When you walk round the fort buildings, you realise how clever these Romans were. The baths are particularly interesting. There is a small coffee shop. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Worth a visit

We checked out a few of the Roman attractions that belong to English Heritage, this was my fav. The baths area alone is worth a visit

Good historically site and very interesting


wtpsg121,
Having not studied the Romans since my time at school ( quiet a few years ago). This was a real refresher to life of the Romans in England over the manyyears they were here. Good signage and plenty of outdoors space not cramped even when lots of people around.

A fascinating piece of history


Rebecca S,
The English heritage gents were warm welcoming and very helpful. There's a lot more to see at chesters then meets the eye. The museum is brilliant fun and deeply intriguing. I found The skull artefact fascinating. Take the family and take a picnic. The river next to the site is lovely for a good picnic. The Roman bath ruin is really cool. It's almost perfect and you can imagine being in there yourself. Loved this place. :)
