An extensive archaeological site, with a quirky but excellent museum, with great exhibits & information. The free tour of the site was brilliant, with a great English Heritage guide, who was full of facts about the site & history, presented in an entertaining manner -...More

Very interesting to see the museum and the artists' reconstructions and realise how like us people were 2000 years ago. Most of the buildings have been razed to floor level, but this means you can still see hypocausts, etc. The bath area was particularly interesting....More

another great site to explore, we were lucky enough to have a fantastic tour guide (neil) who brought the site to life. But you could explore on your own with the guidebook

Great attraction and we'll worth a visit. Free parking if you visit the fort. The area is bigger than you think so it's ideal for kids to explore. Staff are very friendly and informative. Tea room is good but limited in choice.

We had visited Housestead's Fort first so this was a little different. No wall to see, but still a piece of history with interesting educational things to learn. Another example of how much the Romans had done here in Northern England so long ago! There...More
