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.

Excellent visit


lynnc185, Spalding, United Kingdom
Lucky with the weather on our visit here, which included a one hour site tour by an informative guide. Not dry or boring, lots of small relevant facts that made the site come alive. Very glad that this site has been preserved, although it would seem there is a lot more land to excavate locally, if permission is ever given. The museum was well laid out with plenty to see and absorb, with good information boards. Recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Very interesting tour


Barry H,
We had several hours here. The (indoor) museum is excellent. A volunteer gave us a conducted tour of the outdoor site, very good of him. But maybe 1h 45m was a bit on the long side! No tearoom here but parking is easy and there are picnic tables. Well worth the visit.

Roman Interest


travelalotjules,
Had visited all the other Roman towns but never Corbridge so whilst in the area decided to pay a visit. Found it very interesting. There was a lovely museum there as well. We walked from Corbridge itself which took us about 20 minutes but someone had told us you could walk back by the river, more or less the same distance which luckily brought us out where we had parked the car. There is parking up there if you don't want the walk.

Roman Corbridge


Graham S, Wokingham, United Kingdom
Corbridge is a great example of a Roman town with a great museum and site to visit. We really enjoyed exploring the site and learning about the history with the timeline. Recommended to anyone interested in Ancient Rome.

Fantastic dog friendly historical site


LJF84, Nottingham, United Kingdom
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. What an amazing piece of history! Staff are friendly and knowledgable. Parking available and picnic tables outside. The only thing that could improve the site would be a little cafe!
