Very impressed with Vindolanda. So much to see and great information across the site. The museum is great. So many Roman artefacts and again easy to read information. Would definately visit again As excavations going on all the time. Excellent value for money.

What a great place to visit. Buy the joint ticket which gives you access to the Roman Army museum 6 miles up the road. Received a very friendly welcome. An interesting place to visit for children and adults alike.
