Chesters Roman Fort and Museum - Hadrian's Wall

We’re excited to announce that we’re planning to reopen our sites in the coming weeks. We’re really looking forward to seeing you again. On 13 June we will reopen the first phase of our sites, with a significant number of further sites reopening in early July. We hope to have all sites open again by August. We’ll be sharing more information on how you can book your visit as soon as we can, and will be announcing which sites are reopening in advance of this. The first sites to reopen will be announced around 10 June, and we'll let Members know by email ahead of this.
