Places to explore
Chesters Roman Fort
Nestled in a beautiful riverside location, it’s not hard to see why Chesters was a good spot for the Romans to set up a base. The fort boasts one of the best preserved Roman bathhouses you can see in Britain today.
Housesteads Roman Fort
Housesteads is the most iconic of all the Wall sites. The views and Roman remains are spectacular. Delve into the Fort’s story and see a stunning collection of artefacts. A CGI film flies through time and reconstructs Housesteads before your eyes!
A stunning excavated fort and civilian settlement with extensive museum displaying amazing artefacts from the site including some of the world famous Vindolanda Writing Tablets.
Roman Army Museum, Walltown
An extensive museum which gives the whole family a fantastic introduction to the Roman Army and Hadrian’s Wall. Be transported back 2000 years when you put on your 3D glasses to watch the award winning Eagles Eye film!
Once Brewed for Steel Rigg
Change here for the short walk to Steel Rigg or continue to walk along the iconic Wall path to Sycamore Gap, one of the most famous images of Hadrian’s Wall as a Sycamore tree nestles alongside the Wall amongst some fantastic views in all directions.
This is one of the finest places to see Hadrian’s Wall, where it snakes and dives through dramatic countryside along the crags of the Whin Sill.
The Sill – New for Summer 2017
Due to open in Summer 2017, the National Landscape Discovery Centre will enable people to understand and explore the landscapes, history, culture and heritage of Northumberland. The Sill’s fully accessible living roof will sweep gently upwards.
