The flyer of this attraction said we could see the only reconstructed roman bathhouse here, but it was shut! The whole place with the exhibition together is well organised and arranged which was good, but nobody informed us at reception that we can't see the bath house. If I had been told we wouldn't have gone in at all!

This site at the eastrn end of Hadrians wall has so much to offer- they have just revamped the introduction and the user friendly presentation of the site still stands the test of time- It is great for understanding the Wall and Roman fortification - including the cavalry baracks- and the bathouse reconsrtuction is a must- as is the section...

This is a true piece of history dating back to the time of the Roman Empire. The site is right on the edge of the Tyne and is an excellent example of a careful excavation. The visitor centre is well worth a visit and the tower gives a good appreciation of how a Roman settlement would have looked thousands of... More

The museum is amazing, the outdoors area is fantastic, the viewing platform offers sensational views. The cafe service is limited but they go above and beyond to accommodate your needs - do not be afraid to ask for an item which isn't on the menu (within reason!).

One of Wallsend's most interesting attractions, definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. This is the start of the roman empire here on our doorstep!

Friendly staff welcomed us to a small museum, a bit of the wall and the outline of the old fort. If it had not been at the end of our long walk along Hadrian's Wall and there was the promise of our final Hadrian's wall passport stamp, I would give Segundum a miss. We loved the Viewing tower and the... More

It was a cold day in October when I visited this attraction for the second time in 15 years! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Having been to Pompeii in the summer it sparked an interest in revisiting our local equivalent... Segedunum (Wallsend). The cold weather meant I stayed mainly within the indoor exhibits which were were well presented... More

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
