Not all of the sites on Hadrian's Wall were heavily guarded fortresses. Corbridge was a supply base and bustling town where the Romans and civilians would pick up food and provisions.

Today, you can still walk through the town's streets and experience a true time-capsule of Roman life. You can see a valuable hoard of objects found during excavations, including Roman armour and trinkets, which provide a fascinating insight into the life of a soldier.

Well preserved historic site!

This is definitely worth a visit. The museum was informative and the ruins are well preserved. Head into the village for lunch afterward for a perfect family day out.

We had relatively little time for the visit, but once were were inside the site we were entranced. The Roman walls, buildings and roads were sufficiently preserved to be enabled to envisage them as they once were. The on-site illustrations considerably aided our understanding of the site. The museum had some really fascinating pieces. Corbridge is a site not to... More

Have stayed in this village for a family reunion for 3 years running and it's perfect. Everything you need in walking distance, bank, shops, pubs and restaurants and very good public transport - what more do you need!

Great to see the real history of Roman Britain. Well worth a visit, even a small one, to see this piece of history

Was staying in Corbridge so decided to take a look at what I thought would be a small, local visitor centre. I was thoroughly surprised and delighted to find an excellent exhibition and display of Roman artefacts. However by far the best were the remains of the old Roman town and fort which, together with the audio guide, tell the... More

If you only visit one Roman site around Hadrian's wall, then this should be it! It has fabulous revealed architecture and infrastructure, and many wonderful artefacts.

I was fascinated by the museum and the ruins. It was a wet and wild afternoon, but assisted by one of the massive golfing umbrellas you can borrow from there, we stayed mostly dry. The audio guide was very good, well paced and informative, it allowed the visitors to take a dip into their imaginations and see the ruins how... More

We visited this site on a blustery, overcast, Autumn day but enjoyed our tour of this Roman town. The museum is most interesting. Do take advantage of the free audio tour as it is very informative and brings the site to life.
