What have the Romans ever done for us pt 1


Mark D,
A historical site that will be of little interest to most people unless you are interested in roman history. If you are interested in roman history then this is an excellent place to visit.

Exellent experience of remains of a Roman fort and in a very beautiful location

Good parking and a good walk around the well fenced and gated excavated remains. Information boards unfortunate - you are here on most were facing in the wrong direction which would be confusing. Cafe lovely and friendly as were all the staff. Well done, English Heritage

Very nicely restored fort. Museum great and very nice tea shop!


Tim G, Fairfax, Virginia
We were hiking Hadrian's Wall with friends and stopped here. The museum is interesting and different from many others because it had a lot of information about the early days of saving and restoring the wall. The tea shop was quite nice, with a good selection and a very polite staff. Tours are available (free with entrance). There is a very large car park. The fort is located about a mile west of Humshaugh, Hexham.

Visit if you want to do everything


adrian1453, London, United Kingdom
It is hard not to compare this with other sites nearby like Vindolanda and because it is a fantastic piece of Roman history I don't want to be too critical. The point is if you want to do everything in the area then go, otherwise do not feel you are missing out. It is a lovely site and the Roman latrines are impressive but the rest of the site does not stand out. The museum is very old fashioned compared to the other sites and needs upgrading, and all the information given constantly refers to the Clayton family that opened and first excavated the site and this was unnecessary. Underwhelming compared to Vindolanda which is an excellent visitor experience, but if you do visit at least you are helping maintain part of our amazing Roman History.

Exploring Roman history in Northumberland


johnonthemove2, Chabanais, France
Been here three times in the past year. The fort itself merits a half day. The museum is really interesting with mini iPads you can carry round when viewing the exhibits. Given that most of the excavation was privately funded, this is such a well preserved site that is worth traveling to see.
