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.

The ruins are about a mile outside Corbridge so walkable if you're staying in the town. The audio tour is excellent and if you then take a walk along the river bank at Corbridge you pass the remnants of the old Roman bridge over the river.

There is an audio guide available to take with you around the site, and this really brought the town to life. It wasn't busy on our visit, and so we were able to take our time and really imagine what life was like for the Roman Army.

Well excavated Roman ruins, though much of the town is still under adjacent fields. Interesting shop and museum with audio guides available for the site. The site gives a nice contrast to the idea that Hadrian's Wall was only built where it was hilly. The Roman granaries are plainly visible and the fact that the town was built over older... More

This site is basically the remains of the foundations of buildings which formed a Roman Town, but what makes it interesting is the audio guide you use to view the site. If you have an interest in roman history then I think you will enjoy a visit here. The whole visit including the museum doesn't take much more than an... More

Exhibits with lots of information, a real eye opener and the outdoors remains exceeded expectations, would love to see life size Roman soldiers and even one or two general public of the era to add realistic extra layer. The shop is superb, bought a few jars of the more unusual jams there. A very enjoyable day but glad to get... More

Spent a very enjoyable half-a-day visiting this site. The experience is very hands-on, walking directly in amongst the ruins provides a great sense of perspective and you can actually feel how the town was laid out. The site is well labelled (I was happy to wander round without the aid of a guide book but I'm sure that would enhance... More

Great attraction, totally amazing to be able to get in amongst the ruins and see exactly what the guides are talking about. It's becoming rare to actually be able to touch history and it's amazing to see that you still can here. Four stars because some of the info boards are chipped, meaning that some sentences have become illegible.

We came through Norbridge while walking the Hadrians Wall trail and it is one of the loveliest towns on the route. Can definitely recommend to visit the town centre and the Roman fort as well as the church in the centre.

Run by English Heritage. An impressive site and so far only a small part has been excavated. Quite a good museum (make sure you see the Corbridge Hoard) attached to the shop and worth going around before you venture outside . Walking amongst the ruins you really get a feel for how it must have looked in its heyday. I... More
