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.

Enjoyable afternoon


andrea d, Burton upon Trent, United Kingdom
We spent an interesting afternoon walking around the ruins. It was absolutely fascinating, with an audio tour included, it brought all the historical facts to life. Unfortunately the museum wasn't open, as they are renovating it, but it gives us an excuse to return! Take sturdy boots and coat with you as the site is quite exposed to the weather.

Well Worth a visit


Jockieluv1, Birmingham, United Kingdom
We arrived at he site and were greeted by the young lady on site (did not get her name), we were given the audio guide to the site and off we went. This is a stunning site and the audio guide was informative about the towns past. The museum is undergoing some work so we were not able to see any of the finds from the site. The lady who was on that day was very nice and we stood and had a natter with her about the site and she gave us more more information about the site and that there was a lot more of the site that had not been dug up. This site is well worth a visit with a lot more sites in the area that belong to English Heritage.

Roman Ruins

We were excited to tour our first Roman ruins in the Hadrian's Wall area. There is something fascinating imagining how ancient Romans lived while touring the remains of their town. The museum was very interesting.
