TripAdvisor Traveler Rating:TripadvisorBased on 281 reviews

Overview

A fascinating tourist attraction in North East England, Housesteads is the most complete Roman fort in Britain. Set where Hadrian’s Wall climbs to the top of a dramatic escarpment, there are some stunning views to enjoy from the walls of this ancient fortress.

Imagine how life was for the 800 Roman soldiers based here as you wander the remains of the barrack blocks and the commandant’s house. See if you can find the oldest toilets you’ll ever see and there’s a fascinating museum too, complete with a model of how the fort looked in Roman times. With a history that goes back almost 2000 years, it offers a unique family day out in Northumberland.

The exhibition inside the museum brings the iconic landmark back to life. A fascinating collection of artefacts will be on display, some for the first time in hundreds of years and a new film will show-off the stunning landscape of Housesteads and surrounding Hadrian's Wall country.
