Chesters Roman Fort is the most complete Roman cavalry fort in Britain - one of a series of permanent forts built during the construction of Hadrian’s Wall. The cavalry fort, known to the Romans as Cilurnum, was built in about AD 124. It housed some 500 cavalrymen and was occupied until the Romans left Britain in the 5th century.

Chesters is home to a spectacular Roman Bathhouse, seen here.
