Plan a Great Day Out
Just over five miles from Winshields is Housesteads Roman Fort, where you can experience English Heritage's flagship attraction on Hadrian's Wall. Here you can stand on the edge of the Roman Empire and marvel at the 360 degree views.

Through these, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million people each year. The English Heritage Trust is a charity, no. 1140351, and a company, no. 0744722, registered in England.
