Important update from English Heritage
In line with government guidelines, our staffed sites remain closed in the interests of public health. It is now clear that we will not be able to re-open on 1 May as we had originally hoped. Instead we will re-open as soon as government advice allows and only when we can ensure the safety of our visitors and our staff and volunteers.

English Heritage look after our National Heritage Collection, including many wonderful buildings, monuments and historic sites. The Roman ruins along Hadrian's Wall include the spectacular Chesters Roman Fort and Museum where students can learn about many different aspects of the time the Roman legions spent here in Northumberland.

Why book English Heritage for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

Rather than letting the imagination sort out this historic Roman venue, with its groups of stones and numerous lumps and bumps, English Heritage have done an impressive job of bringing this site to life. This is especially true for school children, who can see and interact with the physical structures and museum artifacts that make up this unique piece of British history. Teachers will find plenty to bring their classroom topic to life.
