Birdoswald Roman Fort,


Experience Britain's greatest Roman monument: 2,000 years in the making.
Hadrian's Wall is at the heart of Roman Britain telling the dynamic story of the northwest frontier of the Roman Empire. Spanning 80 Roman miles, Hadrian's Wall Country links Carlisle with Newcastle upon Tyne and Bowness-on-Solway on the Cumbrian coast.
There were once over 30 forts on the Roman frontier, including the original 16 on the line of the Wall, along with milecastles, turrets, a ditch to the north and the great Vallum earthwork to the south.
Today you can visit the string of amazing forts and museums that stretch across the north of England and explore the fantastic atmosphere of the bustling cities, market towns and quaint villages you will find along the way.
Why not explore by foot, cycle or on the Hadrian's Wall Country Bus to get the most out of this spectacular World Heritage Site.
The Wall is visible at some sites, such as Birdoswald and at many other places in between.
