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.

Lovely seating outside . Sort of child friendly in that they offer a few options for small people. We had three x fish and chips- two were enormous and had lovely batter and one was tiny with over cooked batter . Seems expensive compared with other pubs in Corbridge . Glad to see Tyneside blond on tap - a very... More

I live locally and am ashamed to say that I have not visited this site. I brought sa visitor here and was veyr impressed with the way the site was kept. one or two of the signs needed replacing but it is an open site so get the elements. I was very diappointed there was no tea shop on site.......... More

An interesting compact site with many artefacts, well worth a visit. For the walkers, an interesting walk to the site is not along the main road, but from the village centre turn down the Well Bank and follow the path along the river to the old mill, take a sharp turn right through the field to the main road. Turn... More

We visited on a damp day in August. Easy Parking about 2 miles out of Corbridge, English Heritage site, Excellent small museum, plenty to see outside with ruins up to 2 meters high, only part of the town excavated but well displayed with interpretation boards. Toilets no food or drinks available. Picnic tables on the site.

Unfortunately our site visit was curtailed by bad weather, as the site is very exposed to strong winds. The museum indoors is quite fascinating and you could easily spend an hour or even more going through all the exhibits. Take advantage of the available audio guides for best effect.

Well, yes, there are more buildings standing there, but to get a remarkable insight into Roman life here in Britain this site is hard to beat. The museum of found artefacts here and in the surrounding excavations is of the highest quality and very well labelled and explained. Outside the state of the excavated remains is exceptional and the periodic... More

Spent about an hour here, though could have spent longer. Very good audio guide to ruins which helps put everything into context. Also museum with more information & artifacts. It's English Heritage and certainly worth joining if you plan to do a lot of the Hadrians Wall sights.

Just outside the modern town, this is a very impressive Roman site in a lovely setting. Plenty of well preserved and extensive remains to see together with an interesting little museum. Not a very busy site.

This was a real eye opener. I have never seen such a well laid out Roman ruins and the excellent museum next to the sight is full of information and artefacts. It has toilets and a shop and is under the banner of English Heritage

Good museum giving a good background to the site. Information boards around the site in 4 languages, unlike some of the other EH sites along the Wall. However somewhat surprised that EH allow people,to climb on the walls/remains.
