Start your Hadrian’s Wall adventure at Birdoswald Roman Fort in Cumbria. Here you can still see the remains of all of the Wall’s defining features. Stand in awe as the longest remaining stretch of the Wall spans as far as your eye can see, and explore the ruins of the Roman fort, a turret and milecastle.

Head to the museum and march like a Roman soldier through a four meter high gatehouse to find the new exhibition. Get your head around the history of Hadrian’s Wall with lots of hands-on fun and games.

English Heritage looks after numerous sites along Hadrian’s Wall, such as Housesteads Roman Fort, Chesters Roman Fort and Corbridge Roman Town, along with Carlisle Castle and Belsay Hall. If you would like to visit multiple English Heritage sites, you can purchase either a temporary Overseas Visitor Pass or an Annual Membership.
