Overview

Set high on a dramatic escarpment on Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, Housesteads Roman Fort takes you back to the Roman Empire.

Wander the barrack blocks and the hospital. Peer into the oldest toilets you're ever likely to see, and admire the stunning panoramic views from this ancient fortress.

English Heritage's interactive museum showcases objects once belonging to Roman soldiers, and the mini-cinema will take you on a journey through time.

Pack a picnic and enjoy a Roman adventure overlooking panoramic vistas.

Amazing part of history.


Ian F,
This is a great place to visit and the biggest fort on the wall. This is also the only place you can officially walk on the wall. The mussem is very small but gives alot of information about everything to do with the area the wall. Well worth a visit

Worth visiting the biggest site on the wall


DrPeterDRobinson, Derbyshire
Stunning location, impressive ruins, good small museum and the opportunity to walk on a section of the wall. Food and drink options are a bit limited in the visitor centre and it is a steep climb to the site, but definitely worth it.

Gorgeous on a summer day! Details on facilities


Tim G, Fairfax, Virginia
Bottom line: Great place to visit on a summer day, gorgeous views. Bit of a hike from the car park to the fort (8-10 minutes up a steep hill). Use the toilets when you arrive because they're near the car park. Details: There are gorgeous views from Housestead's. There are free tours given regularly. The visitor's center was interesting, and they also sold sandwiches, drinks, etc. Toilets are near the car park, which is a solid 8-10 minute walk up a very steep hill. There are now toilets new the visitor's center or fort (although there were a couple of portable toilets "for emergencies." So, if you're driving, use the toilets while you're near them. The car park is large. There is a small fee to park (I think it costs 4 pounds).

amazing

Even though I visited when it was cold, wet and windy I loved the visit. So evocative and well presented. Small museum but amazing value all round. Highly recommended and wonderful scenery.
