A great example of a roman hill Fort and lots of information and pictures to bring the remains to life. There is a steep walk from the car park but it's all on a stone path and there is no rush to get there. Small...More

Housesteads does have ad-hoc volunteer guides on site but these can't be booked in advance and may not be there on the day you visit. There are some interpretation panels around the site, a very useful guide book and an informative museum with a short introductory film show - a must at the start of your visit.
Hope this helps,
