I was so pleased I visited the nearby Roman Army Museum first, as it sets the scene for the former Roman town of Vindolanda. The site is vast, with clearly visible streets, roadways and houses. Each area has a clear sign describing the visible remains....More
Really impressive archeological site and impressive museum displaying ‘finds’ in a way that is easy to take in, very family friendly. Loved the impressive collection of leather shoes the detailed designs were inspiring! A must to do the Roman army museum too!
Things which may be helpful: 1) You need 2-3 hours to do the whole thing; 2) Nice cafeteria next to the museum; 3) GREAT museum with lots of local artifacts found onsite.

We went on a guided tour at 10.30am on Saturday 5th May. There was another one on later, maybe at 1pm? The guided tour is included in the admission price, and meets inside the courtyard at the western entrance. The other entrance is at the museum end of the site. The tour is conducted by a volunteer, ours was great. I highly recommend a tour!
