  • Fun, free day out. Staff are very knowledgeable, and really nice to see reconstructions of buildings and forts from the Roman era
  • Took our Scout Group here. Fantastic place for a free educational visit.
  • The Roman Fort, known as Arbeia, is well worth a visit to such a distinctive archeological site. Try not to view the modern surroundings and imagine the commanding panoramic view it would have had of the sea approaches, the river and surrounding countryside nearly 2000 years ago.
  • One of the fort's gates reconstructed. Quite a sight, to be sure. Plus there is a museum of finds from this site.
  • Well worth the trip. Lots to see and its Free entry :)
