Inspiring Plans for Hadrian's Wall

2017 is an exciting year on Hadrian's Wall. The year marks the 1900th anniversary of Hadrian becoming Emperor and the 30th anniversary of the destination becoming a World Heritage Site.

English Heritage will also start work on improving the visitor experience at both Birdoswald Roman Fort and  Corbridge Roman Town.

English Heritage is looking to improve the visitor experience at Birdoswald Roman Fort.

Plans include a full re-interpretation of the site to bring the Roman story at Birdoswald to life. English Heritage is also proposing to introduce a newly reconfigured education room, shop and café providing a warm Cumbrian welcome to Hadrian's Wall visitors.

English Heritage also plans to invest in the museum and shop at Corbridge Roman Town, the popular Roman visitor attraction outside the town of Corbridge.

Never seen before objects will be displayed in a totally new-look museum, alongside the internationally signficant find Corbridge Hoard and Corbridge Lion.

The site will remain fully open until September 2017 when the museum will close. Visitors can still enjoy the extensive site remains until November 2017. The entire site will close in November and December 2017. The site will partially re-open again in January 2018 before being full re-launched in Spring 2018.
