Housesteads Roman Fort


Set high on a dramatic escarpment of Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, Housesteads Roman Fort is a fascinating tourist attraction and there are stunning panoramic views to enjoy.

Imagine how life was for the 800 Roman soldiers based here as you wander the remains of the barrack blocks and the commandant’s house. See if you can find some of the oldest toilets you'll ever see and there's a fascinating museum too, complete with a model of how the fort looked in Roman times.
