Overview

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.

Lucky with the weather on our visit here, which included a one hour site tour by an informative guide. Not dry or boring, lots of small relevant facts that made the site come alive. Very glad that this site has been preserved, although it would...More

We had several hours here. The (indoor) museum is excellent. A volunteer gave us a conducted tour of the outdoor site, very good of him. But maybe 1h 45m was a bit on the long side! No tearoom here but parking is easy and there...More

Corbridge is a great example of a Roman town with a great museum and site to visit. We really enjoyed exploring the site and learning about the history with the timeline. Recommended to anyone interested in Ancient Rome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. What an amazing piece of history! Staff are friendly and knowledgable. Parking available and picnic tables outside. The only thing that could improve the site would be a little cafe!

The newly refurbished museum is amazing, the range of artefacts on display really brings Roman Britain alive. Excellent explanations from the displays and really helpful site staff. Some of the smaller exhibits are the most interesting, such skilled workmanship. Well done English Heritage!

Corbridge’s new museum opened recently after its refurbishment, congratulations to the curator, it’s fantastic, engaging for both kids and adults and well worth the entry fee. There are lots of Roman finds displayed, and on par with the Vindolanda museum. Love the set up and...More

Hi, it can take around 2 to 3 hours. It's not a big site. It's really nice though and staff are excellent answering all your questions. I think it's worth the visit if you don't have time to go to any of the other... More
