Chesters Roman Fort & Museum

Chesters Roman Fort & Museum

Chesters Roman Fort offers the best visible remains of a cavalry fort in Britain today. Built to guard the Roman bridge, the fort is an opportunity to explore the entire foundations of the headquarters building, including the courtyard, hall, regimental temple and the largest, most luxurious building – the commandant’s house. An on-site Museum houses the Clayton Collection, a collection of fascinating finds from along Hadrian’s Wall.
