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.

Park in free car park (beside the bridge) and enjoy a stroll through the beautiful town of Corbridge. At first I thought I would be "all-Roman'd-out" from visiting so many interesting places in the area but I was not disappointed. Very friendly staff greet you at entrance, strongly recommend the guide book (reasonably priced). Corbridge, compared to Vindolanda or Houseteads,... More

This is a great place to visit and loads to see and find out about history of Roman times, you can walk for miles so be prepared but it is well worth a visit and can take up a whole day of your holiday for a very reasonable price.

Corbridge is the site of a succession of Roman forts, and a later Roman town, the remains of which can be seen today. Inside the museum there are plenty of finds and artefacts and boards detailing the history of the site. In many of the cases, a stuffed lion toy presents the collection in a way children can understand, in... More

The Roman town stands in the fields a few hundred metres north of Corbridge, just south of the Newcastle-Carlisle road. Some of the walls are up to 1.5 m high and a considerable number of buildings has now been exposed. It's impossible to describe, in a brief review, but it is fascinating and very well worth the effort of visiting.... More

Corbridge is an interesting old Roman town. We visited Hadrians wall first. It is largely covered with brambles and small growth as it runs beside the road but on the path you can see it better. A lot of the stones are covered with moss. Having done that we headed back to town to see the old Roman ruins. There... More

I notice some people are reviewing Corbridge Town as opposed to the Roman Fort/ town. The roman remains are superb, it is really easy to visualise how the place looked. The museum was full of things of interest, including, of course, the famous Corbridge Hoard, but lots of personal items found on the site which I have not seen elsewhere.... More

The Roman site at Corbridge is excellent! Make sure that you have the audio tour guide and then you can relive being a Roman citizen (or legionary!) out in the wilds of Northumbria.
