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 an epic experience that allows you to imagine how a busy Roman town was designed. As you see the ingenuity of design that has been uncovered you enter into the mindset of the centuries past to visualize the business of the town. This experience was exciting as there was the chance to see the mode of construction up... More

Had previously visited most the sights along the wall but missed this one out. I am glad that I visited this time. There is a lot of brickwork still visible and a museum showing finds from the site.

On a first visit with friends from the area, we were massively impressed not only with the history of the town but with the ability of the planners to ensure that it stays just as it is. The Church of Saint Andrew is well worth a visit not just for the Roman origins, but also for the very modern, beautiful... More

Not totally accessible in a wheelchair but you can go along a path where you can look over the site. The museum was informative and interesting. The shop sold Roman related items including mead
