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.

Huge ruins


KimTravels, Greater London, United Kingdom
These are really quite large and illustrated how the town may have looked. The museum was well appointed and interesting. Definitely worth the stop.

Nice small museum with Extensive Remains


Geordiedaz, Durham, United Kingdom
This place has a nice new build museum, showing some excellent artifacts. Through here you come to the Old Roman Town remains, which are fairly extensive with informative boards, although you can pick up a free audio guide. There is no cafe but plenty of picnic tables and a car park that will hold about 20 or so cars. If you are feeling energetic it's about a mile out of town and an easy flat walk.

Nice quiet couple of hours


Kerry C, Coaldale, Canada
We spent a couple of hours here, luckily arriving just in time for a guided tour with Ian. Ian did a fantastic job with the explanations and descriptions of each of the stops on the tour. Although he stated that he was trying to get his tour length down to an hour, I was happy with the additional time and would have gladly had him guide us even longer. The building use as an entrance to the site is packed with information and artifacts, and was perfect to set the tone for the tour. If you expect to get anything out of this site without taking a tour, using the audio equipment or at the very least buying the guide book, you will be disappointed. Just walking the site and absorbing what is there is an amazing experience...at least to me. Corbridge was quite a bustling centre at the time. We are so glad we stopped and spent some time here.

A decent sized Roman border town ruins worth looking at


_sw5555_, Vancouver, Canada
A good stop along the wall to look at a Roman border town which had supply ties with the military of its day. Decent sized and with a fair bit of ruins left to see. Worth a stop.
