  • This is the site of roman fort along Hadrian's Wall. The museum was small and very interesting. We would have appreciated more interpretive signage or a guide brochure to help with what we were seeing...  read more »
  • Arrived as it opened in the morning and received a warm welcome. The exhibits were fascinating and the amenities were also of a high standard. 
  • Incredible! You can walk up and touch stones that were placed there 2000 years ago. I have no words. 
  • We went primarily for the kite festival and it was fantastic!
  • Magical place lots of walks history a feel that history is alive
  • It's quite far from everywhere. We didn't mind the parking charge as we are EH members and had it refunded, but breakfast for 2 average coffees and 2 average cakes to come at nearly £15 felt a bit of a rip-off. If you can, bring your own picnic. The area is breathtaking if you visit the Hadrian's Wall sites in the area.
  • Another excellent English Heritage site to visit. Well-run and full of real British history
  • English Heritage members are must see places.
