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.

Having not visited Segedunum for quite some time my wife and I went to see the British Museum exhibits. As ardent museum visitors we found the items on display to be fascinating. There were folders with large print versions available but we only found them by chance, in some cases the white on red display boards were difficult to read.... More

Make no mistake, there is more to this place than at first sight. Wallsend is far from glamorous, but after absorbing the displays in the visitor centre you may well change your mind, we certainly did! The viewing tower is a great way to start the tour, the video timeline explains the site in an easy to understand way. There... More

Being a keen amateur historian with a particular interest in the Roman occupation of our region, I have longed to visit Segedunum for some time. Finally had the time and weather to do so today, and sadly was hugely underwhelmed with what I found. The museum is very tired and worn. The exhibits are illogically arranged and don't absorb you...

Hi Gareth Thanks for visiting and I’m sorry to hear your visit left you underwhelmed. We’re always looking at ways we can enhance our visitors’ experience and welcome your feedback. The site of the fort was built over during the Victorian period and prior to this, many of the stones from the walls were taken away for re-use in other... More

A good value and lively educational experience, learn lots of things about the Romans, how they lived and the fort that was on the site - the end of Hadrian's wall for over 300 years. The viewing tower gave an aerial view, and the time lapse screen showed the area over the past few thousand years. Interesting that not so... More

Really great visit to see the Roman remains at the end of the wall. Very well set out and interpreted. Also interesting to see remains of the old colliery. Excellent museum and just a pity we missed the British museum exhibition by a few days. Worth a visit for the view from the observation tower over the Tyne and the... More
