Poor weather precipitated our visit but it turned out to be serendipitous. It turned out to be a very enjoyable visit that offered well-priced and convivial refreshments. I was very disappointed that the bath-house was closed and a bit baffled by the strange tower. However when I had overcome my natural reticence to enter a lift it all became clear.... More

Expensive for what you get to see. The reconstructed roman bath house is closed currently, so £6 seemed a lot just to see the museum and the runs of the fort and Hadrians wall. You could have walked round the outside and across the road and seen Hadrians Wall without paying the £6 entrance fee. We went up the viewing... More

Segedunum is an easily accessible moderately sized museum and roman site that includes the ruins of an ancient roman fort, interactive exhibits for children, and a reconstructed bath house which is open to explore. Unfortunately, the site itself isn't the best preserved and the museum, though interesting, seems a little worn down and sparse. You can really fly through the... More

Visited partly as advertised as having the only reconstructed Roman bath house in the country. Arrived at 3.45. Entrance details said closed at 4.30. Asked at desk if we had time and told no problem, closes at 5.30. The discrepancy had bee noted before, but nothing gets done. Paid to go in. Museum average, butt remains disappointing and not well... More

Now there is no getting away from the fact that the fort remains themselves are not the best preserved in Britain, so some may find them disappointing. (There was a reconstructed bath house, but unfortunately this has now had to be closed until further notice because of safety concerns.) However the Visitor Centre/Museum is one of the best I've seen.... More

Its easy to get to from the Metro, there are some great views of the river,the staff are engaging and the indoor museum is okay but outside is a different story. One of the reasons we visited was to see the bath house but it is closed due to structural problems apparently (don't think the romans built this one!) but... More

We were setting off to walk the wall to Carlisle. Had expected Segedunum to cater to walkers such as ourselves with details of accommodation, opportunities for provisions etc. Nothing! The lady at reception seemed surprised at our intention. The view from the platform was good, but the whole site was looking tired and unloved. Quite overgrown compared to the publicity... More

It was very interesting to see what the area would have looked like in Roman times. There is a exhibition inside which I viewed first; then there was a short video with actors playing out characters from the Roman times; then I went up to the observation deck to view the area; and finally I went out to explore the...

We walked Hadrians Wall from Bowness on Solway and the marking of the end of the wall was very poor at Wallsend when compared to Bowness on Solway
