Overview

Not all of the sites on Hadrian's Wall were heavily guarded fortresses. Corbridge was a supply base and bustling town where the Romans and civilians would pick up food and provisions. Today, you can still walk through the town's streets and experience a true time-capsule of Roman life. You can see a valuable hoard of objects found during excavations, including Roman armour and trinkets, which provide a fascinating insight into the life of a soldier.

Visited here with my 9 year old son. I found it very informative and enjoyed it, my son didn't really appreciate it but enjoyed pretend 'sword fighting' so that kept him occupied. Worth a visit.

Really enjoyed our visit today and it was lovely for the dogs to be welcomed with a biscuit each! The museum isn't dog friendly which is understandable but the rest of the site is. The audio tour is great and I thoroughly enjoyed the ruins...More

This site is easily accessed from the centre of Corbridge, either on foot or by car (though the on-site car park isn’t very big). We chose a pleasant walk along the river from the town centre, which didn’t take very long at all. Unlike some...More

Wonderful preserved Roman Town and Exhibition Centre. The River Tyne runs along the near the site, also well worth a stroll for some relaxation and nice photos. Very helpful staff.

We visited this site while walking Hadrian's Wall. This was a wonderfully informative site with hand held audio guides. They really help you have a better understanding of how a Roman town functioned day to day. The museum also has a good selection of artifacts...More

Wandered here as part of our English Heritage membership. It could do with a few information signs updating perhaps - a little bit weathered but a great attraction. Very time team.

Hi, it can take around 2 to 3 hours. It's not a big site. It's really nice though and staff are excellent answering all your questions. I think it's worth the visit if you don't have time to go to any of the other... More
