Although the building (museum and cafe) is super ugly, there is a great exhibition especially for children. Unfortunately not all areas were open to the public, there were crates everywhere. great view from the ugly tower. Bath house was closed as well which was a bit disappointing. Arbeia in South Shields is for free and more worth to see, so... More

We were given a warm welcome on arrival and told to start at the viewing tower where we would be able to see the birds eye view of the ruins. Helping to visualize how it would have looked were interactive exhibitions. Attractions inside museum were the history of Hadrian's Wall and the Roman fort plus local history of Wallsend. Outside...

Looking, as modern tourist often do, at this attraction from Google Maps/Earth left me a little underwhelmed. Apart from a reconstructed wall, the ruins looked unsatisfying. I couldn't have been more judgmental of this attraction! Arrived on a Saturday, parked right outside (free) and was happy to note that the day was half-price (reason unclear). Two adults and one child... More

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
