The site includes Roman remains, the base of a 13th century tower and the Tudor 'horse-pool' where wagons and livestock were washed before market.

Tours of the Eastgate Viewing Chamber can be booked in person or over the phone at the Museum of Gloucester and through the Tourist Information Service. You can also book online at www.gloucesterticketshop.co.uk.
