Corbridge Roman Town
An audio guide brings the story of the town to life and the modern museum has a fascinating array of finds. Writing tablets found at Vindolanda show that troops from Vindolanda were stationed here at times, or came here on leave. Walk along the main street of this Roman garrison town, flanked by the remains of granaries, a fountain house, markets, workshops and temples. It was the most northerly town in the Roman Empire and one of only two on Hadrian’s Wall, the other being at Carlisle.

The most famous finds include a hoard of Roman armour and other equipment and the stone Corbridge Lion whose image is used to guide children on a trail round the museum. The open space of the former forum is used for events during the summer.

The site is managed by English Heritage. Light refreshments, books and souvenirs are available at the visitor centre.
