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're ever likely to see, and admire the stunning panoramic views from this ancient fortress.
English Heritage's interactive museum showcases objects once belonging to Roman soldiers, and the mini-cinema will take you on a journey through time.
Pack a picnic and enjoy a Roman adventure overlooking panoramic vistas.
Note: The Fort is owned by National Trust but managed by English Heritage. The car park is owned by Northumberland National Park and parking charges apply.
