New projects for Hadrian's Wall in 2018

We're currently working hard to transform Birdoswald Roman Fort and Corbridge Roman Town - two of the sites that we care for in Hadrian's Wall Country.

We're overhauling the whole site at Birdoswald Roman Fort and creating a new-look museum at Corbridge Roman Town.

From 27 April, experience Roman history at the fort and town like never before…

Bringing the Romans back to Birdoswald

We're working to bring you one of the best Roman experiences in the region at Birdoswald Roman Fort with a completely new exhibition and facilities.

From spring get hands-on with the whole family in the new exhibition, head out on a quest to explore the fort and then fuel up after your adventure with a Roman-inspired lunch in the new café.

We're also reconfiguring our education room and creating new resources for teachers to inspire their students.

Discover Hadrian's Wall

Explore the best-known frontier in the entire Roman Empire and uncover 2,000 years of history as you go.

Built on the orders of the emperor Hadrian, who visited Britain in AD 122, the Wall today reminds us of the past glories of one of the world's greatest powers.

Walk some of the 73 miles of the Wall, through the Cumbrian and Northumberland countryside, and stop off at forts, museums, towns and temples along the way.
