Corbridge Roman Town - Hadrian's Wall

Corbridge Roman town is open, and operating normal winter opening hours within tier 3 restrictions. This means that indoor areas are closed, and food and drink is take-away only. Full Covid-secure measures are in place, and you need to book your visit in advance.

The Museum at Corbridge is closed until atleast 16 December. The shop and toilets remain open. We will continue to review what parts of the site can open in line with reviews to government guidelines and will provide the latest information here.
