Birdoswald Roman Fort - Hadrian's Wall

Families

Children holding plastic swords in the air with a man dressed as a Roman soldier.

The exhibition is currently closed while we work on some exciting new facilities at the fort. You'll still find a warm welcome, catering and a gift shop temporarily located inside the farmhouse. The fort is open as usual - we look forward to seeing you and telling you about our plans.

Have you got what it takes to be a Roman soldier?

Join our Roman soldier and enroll in his army this summer in the grounds of this ancient Roman Fort. Little soldiers can take part in a variety of hands on activities from games to drills.

Hear stories about life as a soldier and citizen, try on costumes, and handle Roman weapons and objects.
