Worth a visit if your in the area. Another big Roman fort to go round. With a cute little tea room. Has a lovely little museum with fascinating items that have been found in and around the area.

An excellent spot along Hadrian's Wall. Naturally, the centuries have provided some wear and tear on the fort, however, there is sufficient signage and illustrations to help imagine what is was like. The tour guide, whose name I apologize for not remembering, was simply excellent....More

A bit late replying, but I'd choose Chesters for the reasons given above. As well as being beautiful and sheltered, the site museum is full (and I mean full!) of wonderful sculptures that are worth the visit alone. Another... More
