Immerse yourself in Roman history
Chesters is one of the best sites on Hadrian’s Wall — and so easy to reach. With its lovely riverside location at the crossing point for Hadrian’s Wall, its well-preserved Roman bathhouse — and not forgetting its museum, cafe and gift shop — Chesters offers fascinating insights into the day-to-day lives of the Romans in Britain. It’s perfect for a quick dip into history.
For those wanting just a taste of the Roman Wall — if time is tight — Go Hadrian’s Wall can whisk you there by taxi in little over 10 minutes from Hexham. We also cater for larger families or groups with our 8- to 22-seater minibuses.
Some visitors like to start at Chesters and walk to Housesteads and Vindolanda — about 11 miles in all. If this sounds a bit too strenuous, let Go Hadrian’s Wall take you to all three sites as part of a tour package
