Hadrian's Wall: Birdoswald Roman Fort Entry Ticket

1. Hadrian's Wall: Birdoswald Roman Fort Entry Ticket

Rising over ridges and snaking through moorland, the 73 mile-long Hadrian's Wall is an incredible monument with incredible stories to tell. Go on a journey back to life on the frontier and into the Roman Empire's extraordinary tale of power and ambition. Start your Hadrian's Wall adventure at Birdoswald Roman Fort, where you can still see the remains of all of the Wall's defining features. Birdoswald Roman Fort is set on a spectacular ridge above the river Irthing, offering fabulous views down into the gorge below. To the east are the crags of the Whin Sill, where the remains of Hadrian's Wall can be seen tracing the contours of the dramatic landscape. Stand in awe of more than 1,800 years of history as the longest remaining stretch of the Wall spans as far as your eye can see, and explore the ruins of the Roman fort, a turret, and milecastle. Delve into the story of the most famous Roman frontier with the exhibition in the visitor center. Find out how the Wall was constructed, check out some Roman artifacts, and gaze through a periscope to take in the view from the original height of Hadrian's Wall.

What people are saying about Cumbria

The site was amazing. We were only a party of 2 adults, but could see families having great fun filling in fun find it activity sheets. Would highly recommend.

loved the tour which was very informative - especially the Roman bread ovens and the short video seemed to bring everything to life.

It’s a great piece of history to be able to see and touch. So much to learn for all ages.

Very interesting morning at the fort. Archeological dig was particularly insightful
