Remains of the baths and steam room, footings for the Roman bridge that once spanned the river and the beautifully restored Victorian museum of Roman finds from across Hadrian’s Wall – a museum of a museum and a fascinating insight into the way Victorians viewed the world. Guarding the nearby bridge across the river Tyne, Chesters Roman Fort is the best preserved Roman cavalry fort in Britain, once garrisoned by a regiment from Spain.
The fort at Chesters has a beautiful setting by the river Tyne and is wheelchair accessible.
The site is run by English Heritage. Light refreshments, books and souvenirs are available at the visitor centre.
