    Been excavating for many years. Front entrance ,not original, was built to show how it would have been. Can see over to north Tyneside from top of gate. Lots of interesting artefacts.  more »

  • Wonderful. A good walk from the station in an urban area. Reconstructions really help understand how it would have looked. Lots of interaction a great education. The kids I saw there loved it.
  • Small museum with selection of great finds, some nice reconstructions and fort. Museum is wheelchair accessible but reconstructions are not and the ground around the fort is stony, so really depends on your specific wheelchair. Basic toilets (radar key ♿), no cafe. Does have activities in summer but check timetable and opening hours. Visited 4/6/17
  • Went out of curiosity, thought we'd spend an hour there, two and a half hours later we were very impressed, loads of finds and information, thourghly enjoyable afternoon.would definitely visit again
  • Great place to visit. Friendly and helpful staff. Very knowledgeable..gives you a insight to the Roman way of living. And the history of the area
  • What can I say, give it a visit and check out the skeleton in the ground :)
