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.

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.

This is a nice small attraction to spend a few hours at. The museum section is small but very interesting. What was great was the audio guide that came with the entrance fee. It means the site doesn't have to have loads of info boards around the place. On top of that, the staff were really friendly and polite which... More

Greeted by a friendly member of staff who was more than happy to help. The museum attached to the shop was fantastic, not only for the exhibits on show but also for the information provided about all of them. Like having a history lesson. The actual ruins of the town are quite large although most of it is just foundations... More
