Things to do at Corbridge Roman Town review
Corbridge Roman Town – Hadrian’s Wall is located close to Corbridge in Northumberland and it is maintained by English Heritage. The site is the preserved ruins of a Roman Garrison located on Hadrian’s Wall and the site also has a museum of excavated artefacts. The site is situated in the Tyne valley and surrounded by rolling Northumberland hills.
Corbridge was once a bustling town and a supply base where Romans and civilians would pick up food and provisions. It was a vibrant community up until the end of Roman Britain in the early 5th century. You can walk through what was once the town’s streets. The walls are still relatively high in places and you can imagine the hustle and bustle where feet once trod before you. The street once ran all the way to Carlisle. The site is a great place for a game of hide and seek and there’s lots of fun nooks and crannies to discover.
The museum is home to the largest of Hadrian’s Wall collections including one of the most significant finds of Roman History with armour and trinkets. These were found in 1964 by archaeologists and were in a chest said to be buried by a Roman Soldier. Inside there are extra activities for the kids including a craft corner.
