Overview

Visitors to Corbridge Roman Town can walk along the main street of this Roman garrison town, flanked by the remains of granaries, a fountain house, markets, workshops and temples.

Astride the intersection of Roman Dere Street and Stanegate, Corbridge was initially the site of a series of important forts. But after Hadrian's Wall was fully commissioned it developed into a prosperous town, a tempting leave-centre for off-duty Wall garrisons.

Today, you can still walk through the town's streets and experience a time-capsule of Roman life. You can also discover Roman armour and trinkets uncovered with the Corbridge Hoard at the museum. The Hoard was one of the most significant finds in Roman history, providing us with a fascinating insight into the life of a soldier on the Wall. The museum is also home to the Corbridge Collection, the largest of the Hadrian's Walls collections.

Roman road


jbarryleven, Beverley, United Kingdom
Very good and comprehensive Roman site of both a settlement and barracks. English Heritage guide gave us a very interesting guided tour of the site, explaining all the buildings, roads etc.. There is also a museum attached to the entrance office with many interesting artefacts. As we are members of English Heritage, entrance was free and gave us a good afternoon out.

Fabulous guided tour


Kate Y, Dundee, Scotland
It's years since I've visited the Roman site at Corbridge and I was so glad to do so again just a week or so ago. It's a fabulous site in itself but what really made it come to life for us this time was our wonderfully enthusiastic guide, Lynn. She clearly loves the place and enjoys sharing her knowledge with the visitors. Thank you, Lynn for making this a very special visit.

Excellent


Chris E, Streetly United Kingdom
Visited the above attraction and really enjoyed the experience. As a Roman history buff , I have visited numerous historic Roman sites , but this one is particularly good. A large area are on view , with good examples of hypocaust , roadways and building layouts all visable. A museum also exits on site, which is alsovery informative . A small shop and toilet facilities are also available. I understand that as part of celebrations for the 30th anniversary of Hadrians Wall becoming a world Heritage site , the site is being upgraded prior to its 2018 opening. This should make the attraction even better. An important site in understanding Rome's northern boarder!

Best site on Hadrian's Wall


davidmbg, Crawley, United Kingdom
This was the third if three we visited (Chesters and Housesteads were the others) over 2 days. This was the biggest in relation to the archaeological site with a lot more to see. Spend a couple of hours there exploring the site. There is a museum on site as well.

Excellent all round

Very interesting site to visit....plenty above ground to see and well laid out with information boards, and a very good tour from Lynn. Museum is excellent...well laid out, plenty of information and a great variety of site finds. Visited most local Roman sites and this one is the most interesting.
