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

Many walkers of the Hadrian's wall route will either start or finish their journey here. As it was the starting point for me I had to go there to pick up my passport. I decided to have a look around and was definitely impressed with the museum. It gives you a good idea on what the area looked like during... More

We all enjoyed this venture, wonderful exhibition on at the moment of Roman artefacts from BM. The view from the Tower was amazing you really understand how the Tyne twists and turns as it heads to the sea, also the size of the boats that come this far up the river. You look down on the Los ship yards and... More

This has a huge amount of Roman history, artefacts etc that are well worth the visit. it seems that it is not known very well outside of Wallsend - but it is worth sharing to others who are interested in archaeology. We were actually travelling back from down in Suffolk, and had already visited a few other archaeological sites on... More

Segedunum offers a good introduction to those who want to explore Hadrian's Wall. Nice museum with great displays and lots of video's, perfect for kids as well as adults interested in the Roman heritage. The tower offers a good view over the excavation.

Only spent a couple of hours here and that was more than enough. Was interesting to read and visualise history throughout the ages. Think the price per person was a little expensive, but free car parking on site.

Once you have negotiated the gift shop by the entrance, paid your fee, head to the tower so you can see the site below to give you an idea of the layout because from ground level this is difficult. The museum and bath house are interesting and have plenty of information boards. The cafe serves basic food and is rather... More

Segedunum is fantastic if you like history and are interested enough to read the information provided next to the exhibits. Everything you could ever want to know about Hadrians Wall is right there. The cafe is unbelievably expensive for what is no more than a coffee/tea shop and the constant buzz of groups of school children is annoying. It attempts... More

Go see it. Recently refurbished. New travelling exhibitions by British Museum. Awesome reconstructions including full size Roman military baths. One of the best and most unique museums in Britain. What a way to begin a journey along the Roman Wall.
