About
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.

While travelling the length of Hadrian's Wall, we popped in here to see what a town was like and not just a fort. Well we couldn't have been more impressed with what we saw.
On arrival the last tour of the day had just started and we were directed to join it. The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about all things Roman and really brought Corbridge Roman Town alive.
Beautifully presented museum and friendly staff rounded off our visit nicely. Not to be missed.

It was a dull October day, we thought it would be a quick look outside, but we caught onto an explanation tour by Ian.
Was fantastic, Ian brought it alive for us. Very knowledgeable, thankyou.
The exhibits inside were lovely too.

We were pleasantly surprised by this Roman town. We arrived just as it started to rain and took the time to have a look at the artefacts in the museum, before joining a guided tour round the site by Ian.
His interest and passion for the Roman era were a credit to the English Heritage team.
We visited mid week and our tour was brilliant. Ian was very knowledgeable about Corbridge and the other local Roman sites, and gave us an in-depth experience.
We found out so much more than we would have just taking ourselves round.
Thank you to the staff for being so welcoming and taking the time to show us round.

Corbridge is the most extensive and complete Anglo-Roman site I've yet visited and the extent of intact remains makes visualisation of that past time very easy. This is aided massively by the excellent and absorbing audio guide which comes free with your entry fee.
The setting, amongst the lovely, rolling countryside South of Hadrian's wall and within site of the charming market town of Corbridge makes the visit all the more enjoyable.
There is a substantial and beautifully presented museum attached to the site, displaying artefacts and illustrations to flesh out your picture of the Roman settlement.
There is also a gift shop, selling quality items associated with the site, Hadrian's wall, Northumberland's heritage and history in general. Hot drinks and small snacks are available, although there's no cafe as such.
The two ladies who were running the site when we visited could not have been more welcoming and helpful.
A superb attraction.

Totally amazing town ❤️ Perfect for walking in Northumberland or visiting castles/ Roman sites as there’s so much to see and do close by. The town itself has everything in walking distance. Loads of great pubs, cafes and restaurants. We visited most of pubs and they were all very reasonably priced as was the food they served.

We had a great visit to Corbridge - which was enormously enhanced by Ann a volunteer giving us a talk about the place. This enabled us to know so much more than info boards could ever have told us. Definitely worth the time taken to come here.

Fascinating Roman site managed by English Heritage. Disappointed no tea-room, especially as there were lots of visitors there: lovely souvenirs and friendly staff, with a well presented museum and interesting ruins to explore. Informative signboards with clear and intelligent presentations made this site well worth visiting.

Interpretative centre was excellent, especially the timeline which explained the evolution of the Roman settlement. Wonderful collection of artefacts. Self guided tour included in ticket price.

Popped here on the off chance after visiting Bamburgh. I was on the way back to Haltwhistle and so pleased I did . My dog Merlin was welcomed and spoken to lots by the archaeologist Neal who was giving a free tour . We learnt a lot and had a lovely chilled afternoon.
I was travelling on my own with my dog around Northumberland and had a wonderful time at this and other English Heritage sites .

Been meaning to visit for a good while now so glad we did. We parked at the site itself although you can walk there from Corbridges main Carpark.
Our arrival time coincided with a guide giving a walk around the site.
Ian the guide was excellent, he give lots of insight into what we were actually looking at. He really brought the place to life. An excellent small museum on site too.
