      Pocket Guide: Binchester Roman Fort Binchester Roman Fort Hotels

      At the heart of County Durham, the Binchester Roman Fort is one of Britain's best preserved Roman ruins. It's close to a good range of hotels in Bishop Auckland and nearby Durham and Darlington, and is open to the public from spring to autumn.

      The History of the Binchester Roman Fort

      The site is estimated to date back to the 1st Century AD, soon after the Roman Conquest of Britain began. When complete, it was one of the largest Roman settlements in northern Britain, and remained inhabited until the start of the Middle Ages. For years, it was an important military site, accommodating a cavalry unit that had travelled all the way from Iberia, and also included a large Roman bath with an under-floor heating system.

      The under-floor heating system still survives, and visitors can also observe the remnants of buildings that were excavated from the late-19th century onwards.

      If you are interested in Saxon history, visit the nearby church of Escomb, which dates back to the 7th Century and was probably built with stone from the Roman fort.
