Description: Not all of the sites on Hadrian's Wall were heavily guarded fortresses...
Not all of the sites on Hadrian's Wall were heavily guarded fortresses. Corbridge was a supply base and bustling town where the Romans and civilians would pick up food and provisions. Today, you can still walk through the town's streets and experience a true time-capsule of Roman life. You can see a valuable hoard of objects found during excavations, including Roman armour and trinkets, which provide a fascinating insight into the life of a soldier.

This is a great place to visit for a couple of hrs, as you can wander around the ruins with the audio guide, and the finds in the small musuem are enjoyable too. Thoroughly enjoyed myself here!

Corbridge is a jewel in Northumberland. It boasts a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Lovely walks along the River Tyne and an interesting Roman site and museum

Large roman ruin with an excellent museum. It is well signed with didactics and has been well cared for. Just outside Corbridge it is near Hadrians Wall. The Hoarde of Roman Armor is amazing.

Been to a few Roman ruins now and this is one of the best presented with lots of information. There is a small museum to set the scene then a good audio guide to take you around the site. Also display boards on the site with information.

Spent the morning here and found it fascinating and well worth going. The audio is veryuseful to give you a sense of what it may have been like. The museum contained a lot of interesting items. The lady at the counter was helpful and friendly.

An interesting well excavated site with a small very informative museum. My husband liked still being able to walk down into the strong room! Tiny compared to Vindolanda but well worth a visit. There is no tea shop at this site so we went into Corbridge and found Massey's Traditional Tea room which was fantastic!

2000 or so miles from Rome and you wouldn't think it. The feel and atmosphere on a sunny day is marvellous, especially as 6 weeks ago I was in Rome! The only shame is that so much has been buried under surrounding developments over the centuries.

We visited in April 2015. We are English Heritage members, so we were keen to try the place out. We have visited Corbridge numerous times but was unaware until recently of this amazing site just outside the town (to the west). Good stuff: Make sure you ask for an audio guide, it is included in the entrance fee and really... More

Worth visiting if you are in the area, takes about 1 hour. Great example of Roman Britain. The audioguide brings it back to life. It is impressive how advanced was Roman architecture and enginery. Fascinating place for history buffs. Not much to do and not very safe for under 5!

This is one of several excavated Roman sites in the Hadrian's wall area. We couldn't tour the museum, as we had our dog with us, but the site was fascinating, with the plus that it's just outside the charming (but perhaps overly shopping orientated) village of Corbridge.
