A World Heritage Site With So Much To Explore
We are the ideal place to start your journey either driving or walking Hadrian’s Wall, World Heritage Site. Our Hadrian’s Wall Gateway Visitor Information Centre is packed with Roman and Medieval stories and artefacts to get you on your way so you can explore the wall and the history that surrounds it. Full of ideas of places to see along the Wall with travelling times, SAT NAV references, maps and leaflets. We are a natural gateway to the Wall with all its history, stories including those that came after the Romans departed.
Situated within the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall and next door to the 12th century Lanercost Priory we are truly blessed with a fabulous setting. Just 12 miles East of Carlisle, 15 minutes from the M6 and easy to find at the gateway to Hadrian’s Wall. Follow signs from the A689/A69 to Brampton and then follow the Brown Tourist Sign to Lanercost Priory and Birdoswald Roman Fort. This will take you straight to us.
