Our two sites - Roman Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum - are situated amongst some of the best preserved sections of Hadrian's Wall. They lie in the beautiful central section of the Wall within the Northumberland National Park. We would recommend you allow a day to see both our attractions and if you are really swift you might manage a short walk as well! Whatever the weather, we can keep you and your friends, entertained, fed and watered. With free parking, unique exhibits and live archaeology to watch across the summer months an unforgettable and full day out awaits.
Visit Roman Vindolanda today and you will find one of the North East’s most famous and not to be missed tourist attractions lying in the beautiful landscape of Hadrian's Wall Country. Formerly a key military post on the northern frontier of Britain, Vindolanda is the home of Britain's 'Top Treasure' - the Vindolanda Writing Tablets - and is one Europe's most important Roman archaeological sites, with live excavations taking place every year.
Lying in magnificent countryside next to a sweeping section of Hadrian's Wall and based at the site of Magna Roman Fort, the Roman Army Museum is an authentic and dramatic tribute to Rome’s extraordinary military legacy. Step into the life of a Roman soldier and experience life on the front line of Emperor Hadrian’s formidable British frontier.
This is a suggested day planner for your visit to Roman Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum.
