Plan a Great Day Out

Almost 17 miles west of Benwell is the beautiful village of Corbridge. Here you will find Corbridge Roman Fort, where you can marvel at a remarkable hoard of objects found during excavations, including Roman armour and trinkets. You can also walk down a Roman high street and imagine soldiers stopping here to stock up on supplies before reaching the most northerly outpost on the Roman Empire.

Try following the Corbridge Trail, which takes in our Roman highlights in the area and includes Benwell Roman Temple.
