Roman wall running through an often wild landscape
Witness the stunning views, explore natural wilderness and become immersed in the history while visiting Hadrian’s Wall and Housesteads Fort.
Walk alongside the wall to Milecastle 37 and the infamous Sycamore Gap, taking in the amazing sights on the way and visit the Fort for a real insight into Roman military life.
Discover the past behind the archaeological remains, using the stone walls as a guide around the village south of the fort and envisage the different chambers and rooms.
The team are dedicated to maintaining and improving the site to preserve its natural history and for the public to enjoy.
Note: The Fort is owned by National Trust but maintained by English Heritage.
Following a £650,000 transformation to improve the visitor welcome, orientation and facilities at the best preserved Roman Fort along Hadrian’s Wall, the visitor centre is now open.
If you're unsure what all of this is about, as part of our exciting partnership with English Heritage and Northumberland National Park we have been able to improve the overall visitor experience for everyone. There will be a contemporary feel to the new centre with a raised roof, improved toilet blocks and extra seating inside, an enhanced outdoor seating area and better access to the Fort itself.
