A well looked after site, well maintained and easy to get around. There was so much to see that it needs time to take in each piece. The museum was good, plenty to keep the mind busy with the wonder of all the pieces from the fort. Staff were knowledgeable and answered all questions easily.

I managed to travel there without my purse, so without my EH card, but the very helpful manager checked his computer and we were fine. It really is spectacular, but I am an archaeology geek...there is so much to see. It is well labelled, but the signs are not obtrusive, and you can explore the whole site. You can also... More

This is one of the 'must see' sites along Hadrian's Wall. There is a reasonable sized car park and whilst you do have to pay, the cost is refunded on entrance. There is a shop, museum and cafe. However the most impressive of all are the remains to be seen dotted around the site. This is not a place where... More

Imagine you have travelled from Italy, you are in a foreign country and you have to protect the inhabitants from the raiding parties to the north, you have managed to get used to the colder climate and you are not sure when if ever you will return there again. Now wander around this incredible structure and put yourself in the... More

This was the last museum visit on our wall trip. The musuem is a traditional museum, ie items in cabinets, rather than touchy-feely gadgets. However, interesting none-the-less. Most impressive is the crossing section over the river and the bathhouse.

A great site to visit with plenty to see. Information plaques, which include detailed plans, are provided throughout the site which is extremely well-maintained and a pleasure to walk around. The bath house down by the river was our favourite area. We had coffee and cake from the tearooms, sitting outside enjoying the amazing view. The young girl who served... More

Had lovely cup of tea and cake here. Staff very friendly. If you want more information you have to buy the guide book there is no free leaflet. Probably spent more time here than we needed as we were unaware of other stops on the same road e.g. Homestead. Take a walk down to the river as it is beautiful.... More

We visited this site due to staying close by, we were very pleased that we did. It is much larger then we expected and gives a good indication of how the Roman army lived. It is the largest Roman site that I have visited and is very impressive. I bought the guide book and sat with a coffee, which you... More

This is the best fort to stop at. Well worth the entry price. Great roman baths, and theres lots of the fort to see. Not much wall, but drive on a bit to Housesteads to see the wall in its full glory
