We have just walked the wall, ending at this museum. It was a sad end to a great walk. Especially when I read previous reviews and found the bath house has been closed for several years. The cafe was closed, the interactive screens in the...More

I started from there when I decided to walk the length of Hadrian's Wall. Lots of things to do for younger visitors. The museum also had information about what happened after the Romans, ie. mining and shipbuilding. Good souvenir shop. Although it is near the...More

If you do not have time or inclination to walk the entire length (which some do) and can only stop one place to see Hadrian’s wall, this is probably the place. They have the ruins of the old Roman fort, A museum of Roman artifacts...More

This museum could be something - but it isn’t. The ruins are interesting, but need better explanations and more imagination. The exhibits look good but are not much more. As for the viewing tower, either I can’t see as far as anyone else or it’s...More
