Chesters Roman Fort

Chollerford, Northumberland NE46 4EU
B6318 England NE46 GB

Part of Hadrian’s Wall, Chesters is also the best-preserved Roman cavalry fort in Britain.

You can easily see what life would have been like here at the Empire’s northern outpost as you wander the officers’ quarters and explore the well-preserved baths and steam room. Inside the museum there’s also an amazing collection of Roman items found during the excavation of the wall.

Close to Chesters Roman Fort are the remains of a bridge which carried Hadrian’s Wall across the North Tyne. Visible on both river banks, they are most impressive on the eastern side.
