Owner description: 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.

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.

Lovely village set on the river Tyne lots of history from the keep by the local church where people would seek refuge when the scots raided the village, to the Roman barracks just outside the village. There are numerous hostelries where you can have lunch or dinner and for those who like some real ale beer I would recommend the... More

Interesting museum and was able to walk around the ruins. Well worth the visit for history buffs. Toilets were open on the day we visited but not the café.

Unplanned visit, we were able to get in for free even though we'd forgotten our membership card - great friendly service. Perfect sized museum for families. Quiz for the children. Best of all are the outside ruins which you can clamber across. A bite size fun bit of Roman Northumberland.

Less well known than more famous sites nearby but a treasure and the only place in the world where actual parts of the famous Roman segmented armour have been found and are on display.

Here are the ruins of an historical Roman Fort which have been extensively excavated and have very good signage, so that you know what you are seeing. The museum/visitors' center has wonderful exhibits and explanations of the historical significance of the site. It is located just a short walk (or drive) out of the town of Corbridge which is on...
