Housesteads Roman Fort & Museum
Go Back in time and Experience the Life of a Roman Soldier at Housesteads Roman Fort on Hadrians wall
Set on Hadrians wall, Housesteads Roman Fort is home to stunning panoramic views of Northumberland and a fantastic educational visitors centre. The Fort is one of twelve built by Emperor Hadrian in around 124BC and the accompanying museum is stacked with a range of objects found on the site such as flat-bottomed pottery and cooking pots. English Heritage, which operates the site, has reconstructed some of the Wall which gives visitors an excellent flavour of what the Romans did here and how they lived. Don't miss the opportunity to take a sneek peak into the oldest toilets you'll ever see, and visit the mini-cinema which will take you on a journey through time.
