Architecture & Archeology
Visit a Roman fort that's nearly 2,000 years old
Chesters Roman Fort housed around 500 cavalry troops for nearly 300 years, and the remains are still there to see more than a millennium and a half later. Alongside intact remnants of ancient structures, you'll also get to see relics in the Edwardian Clayton Museum. Make sure to explore the grounds and see the elaborate foundations that mark the spot where the commandant's house once stood. Kids can also grab a trail map and choose an adventure – don't forget to look out for Hadrian's Wall!
