First off, it is a bit of a steep walk from the car park. It wasn’t a problem for us but be prepared. We started off in the museum, it is quite small however it is full of really interesting information and is definitely a good place to start. The fort has information boards placed around which is helpful, it is pretty special to walk around history.

At the moment it is book in advance. I think if you pay the £9 for entry the carpark ought to be free not £3. Fair enough if you are not. Be prepared and dressed for the weather and for a walk . Lots of ruins to wander round and well explained. Some artefacts too in the museum. Also a great access point to walk a bit of Hadrians wall and stunning views

Had to pre-book to get a time to visit due to co-vid. Once you get to the car park it is a 15 minute walk mainly uphill to the site. There is a security camera in the car park which logs your registration and it costs £3 to park even if you are a member. There is a good path to walk along. There are guides walking around the site who are only too happy to tell you about the area and answer any questions.

A great stop for a couple of hours, and fort is a 10 minute walk from the car park and you will need warm clothes and decent boots! We all learned a lot about the Roman way of life on the wall and particularly enjoyed looking at the Roman Latrines! Lovely friendly English Heritage staff.

Very interesting Roman Fort. Amazing to see the extent of the fort & a reminder of how advanced the Romans were 2000 years ago. Lots of interesting aspects including ovens & the toilets, of course! Worth mentioning that it is a 10 min walk up hill from the car park to the fort itself.
