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.

I can't imagine why it has taken me so long to visit this Roman site! It is one of the lesser known sites and for that reason it was not busy at all during my visit. It is extensive and has some nicely preserved buildings, particularly the granaries. The museum is fascinating with some excellent examples of Roman glass and... More

We visited this site as we are English Heritage members and having booked a 'Roman Finds Workshop' for 3 of our party. I was surprised to find it was guide dogs only as EH is generally dog friendly ( I should have checked) but on seeing dogs inside we enquired and were told we could go in as long as... More

A great choice for a family day out with the kids. Being one of the lesser known sites it has a lot less visitors which means you have a lot more space to yourself to view around the site. The museum is also well worth the visit. Car parking is a little bit limited so be aware of this. Quite... More

Great but small museum and fascinating ruins of a Roman fortress, Not large but interesting. Worth a visit if you are passing.

Situated in open farmland near the River Tyne, about a mile to the west of Corbridge, and easily accessible by car/coach (small on-site carpark) or on foot, the remains of this extensive Roman settlement offer an interesting and educational visit for young and old alike. This site is managed by English Heritage. The exhibition centre provides much background information about... More

We walked up from Corbridge which was very pleasant although there is a great safe little car park on site so you needn't. Two adults, four teenagers and a dog made very welcome by the friendly English Heritage staff, one of whom was busy trying to rescue three swallows which had found their way into the wood framed museum.

The museum gives a good account of Corbridge and Hadrian's Wall in the 2nd century AD, with interesting finds, stone memorials and statues, and the site is well-preserved enough to see the major features. There's a free audio guide and slightly dilapidated but informative information boards at the principal points.

Having spent the day at the nearby Cheaters Fort, we decided to "pop in" on our way home. Myself, partner, 7 year old daughter and Dog had a good run about. When using the audio devices provided, you go to the museum first. That said, having walked around the site. What your looking at, makes far more sense after you... More

Corbridge is s lovely little town. I'd recommend parking over the bridge and walking to the English Heritage site along the delightful river path just over the bridge before going uphill into town. The path follows a riverside garden and then footpath to Corbridge Mill. Turn right upto the road then right again to the museum. The site is excellent... More
