What a great place to visit, with plenty to see indoors and outside. The new displays are really interesting with clear explanations of all the inscriptions. The Hoard display is fascinating, worth a visit on its own. Outside, a chance to walk on a Roman road and great buildings (well, their remains) to explore.

We visited on a cold & foggy day but found the museum part warm & interesting. There are a lot of excavated items on show & you get a real feeling for what life was like in the Roman times. Luckily it was quiet when we went as it is not the biggest building & you would probably feel frustrated... More

Thank you very much for your kind words about Corbridge Roman Town. It's always nice to hear that guests have enjoyed their visit! We're sorry that you found the museum to be on the small side; as a smaller site we aren't as busy and it's likely that if you were to return it'd be another quiet day. I'm sorry... More

Our visit to Corbridge Roman fort was a last minute decision after a planned visit to Wallington Hall didn't work out (see my review of that for details). The greeting from the lady at the entrance was friendly and pleasant and the admission charges were reasonable with audio tour handsets included in the price. A quick look round the museum... More

Free entry to members of English Heritage. You can walk around the streets of this old Roman town., and using the audio guide makes it even more interesting. The museum is well worth a visit afterwards. Being so close to the town of Corbridge I would also recommend a visit to the town which is steeped in history but also... More
