We visited Segedunum as part of a tour of the most interesting portions of Hadrian's Wall from our home in Canada. This seemed an obvious place to start since it was the eastern end of the Wall. The attraction of this site lies not in the Roman remains themselves (which are not actually that impressive) but in its presentation. The... More

This is the obvious place to start or finish the Hadrian's Wall walk. The information is well presented, child friendly and informative. The grounds and views are very good. The person who has an interest in Roman history in Britain will enjoy it as much as someone who is only just beginning to understand this history. The day I was... More

Romantic Roman ruins... from my roots the foundations beneath my families home... a lady was found buried with treasure... and my memory of the ships in dock being built is held forever.

Good views of Wallsend, traditional northern food at the cafe and lovely mock roman house. A very interactive museum, maybe better for younger children but overall a good afternoon out.

We started our walk along Hadrian's Wall at Segedunum and found the museum quite interesting, but not as many artifacts as I thought there would have been given that we are right on the site of the fort. The excavation with signage was wonderfully detailed.

The museum here is in the canteen that used to be used by Swan Hunter Shipbuilders so that makes the visit more interesting as the site of Swan Hunter is still largely derelict and unused which is very sad.There are good views of the river and the museum not only explained the Roman site but how the area prospered through...

My husband and I visited this Fort on the same day as Arbeia Roman Fort in South Shields - too much walking in one day, but well worth it. Shame the Bathhouse was closed (parts falling down apparently) but our tickets were discounted. Lovely reception staff and shop had lots of interesting Roman stuff. Viewing tower was excellent to gain... More

Sister site to Arbeia (also definitely worth a visit) and obviously staffed by the same kind of guys, really passionate about history and their site, with a wealth of knowledge developed over time. The musem itself has lots of artefact from around the site, displayed sensitively, including some stuff about the history of the local area. Unfortunately, the reconstructed bathhouse... More

With up to date shops and surrounding areas. Built in 1966 it was becoming run down. With money being well spent it is a nice place to shop now.
