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.

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.

We called in on our tour of Hadrians Wall. As we are English Heritage members entry was free. We were overwhelmed with how the town had been conserved and the museum was very interesting to visit too.

South of the wall and predating its development this was an encampment on the Roman road. An interesting and well laid out Museum well worth looking at before exploring the site. Not a large area uncovered but the granary floor supported on columns is impressive....More

Not as extensive as a lot of Roman sites in Northumberland, but still worth a visit. However, we were glad to be EH members, as the entrance fee seemed a lot for the size of the place. Informative exhibition in the visitors centre, with many...More

The excavations are not very extensive but it is still worth a visit. The town is really interesting and full of history. The boards give an interesting story but there is also an audio guide to add some more information. The site is small but...More

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
