Housesteads Roman Fort

Roman Army Museum, Walltown

Walltown Crags
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.

Birdoswald Roman Fort
Birdoswald Roman Fort is the perfect place to see the longest continuous remaining stretch of the magnificent World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall. Explore the extensive remains of the Roman fort and discover interactive displays.
