Hadrian's Wall: Chesters Roman Fort and Museum Entry Ticket

2. Hadrian's Wall: Chesters Roman Fort and Museum Entry Ticket

Come and see what life was like at one of the Roman Empire's most northern outposts. Chesters Roman Fort is the most complete Roman cavalry fort in Britain. Wander around the unusually well-preserved baths and steam room, and the officers' quarters. Discover an amazing collection of Roman objects and inscriptions in the museum, which were found at the fort and along Hadrian's Wall. Chesters is home to a spectacular Roman bathhouse, a place to relax on Hadrian's Wall for both Roman and modern visitors. The tranquil riverside spa on the banks of the North Tyne consists of a complex of rooms where weary soldiers could take hot, cold, and steam baths. Browse the recently updated Clayton Museum to discover a myriad of Roman artifacts, and find out about the "Savior of the Wall," the Victorian lawyer John Clayton. The museum first opened in 1896 on behalf of the Trustees of the Clayton Collection, and still has many of its original Edwardian display cabinets. Pick up a Chesters Fort takeover trail sheet from the admissions team and set off on a Roman adventure. Take a stroll through history around the fort, the headquarters building and courtyard, hall and regimental shrine. Plus, don't miss the ruins of an elaborate and luxurious commandant's house. Fuel up after your adventure in the Chesters tearooms. Here you will find light lunches made from locally sourced ingredients, sweet treats, and hot and cold drinks. Try a traditional stottie cake for a truly Northumbrian culinary experience.

Overall rating

We picked up our 16-day pass in Battle Abbey (near Hastings) and were received there in a very friendly and courteous manner with all of our questions. The exchange of the GYG voucher went smoothly. - Unfortunately, there was information on the GYG explanation pages that the family pass included 4 children under the age of 19. Unfortunately, as we learned in Battle Abbey, this is not the case; it only applies to children under the age of 18. So we had to buy an extra “adult” pass for our 18 year old son. But English Heritage cannot help it; please change the information on the Get Your Guide pages. Otherwise, the whole booking procedure was very pleasant, quick and flawless. And I think it's great that there are short-term passes for overseas tourists that save you having to take out an annual membership.

Outstanding Value

We traveled the length of Britain from Dover to Hadrian's Wall over 16 days and were extremly pleased at the value the English Heritage pass. We saved over a third of the costs over eight sites including parking. Our EH guidebook is dogeared and worn and is a great souvenir of our journey. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

we visited in London Apsley House and Wellington Arch with the English Heritage pass the visit was free and with audio guide in French for Apsley House. Informative visit and very beautiful building.

The pass is recommended. Paying locally is much more expensive.

Pitty it was realy bad weather - cold, windy and raining...
