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'll ever see, and admire the stunning panoramic views from this ancient fortress.

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

Note: The Fort is owned by National Trust but maintained by English Heritage.

Re-live the moment English Heritage brought Hadrian’s Wall to life in Sept 2015. Hadrian’s Wall Live will return in September 2016. Check back here for details.
