Segedunum Roman Fort, Baths & Museum


The Viewing Tower: The centrepiece of Segedunum is a 35 metre high viewing tower, which gives stunning views of the excavated Fort and the surrounding area. Set against this dramatic backdrop, watch 2,000 years of history unfold as an amazing computer generated story chronicles the changes at Wallsend from Roman times and the building of the Fort to the growth of heavy industry on the River Tyne.

Excavated Remains: The remains at Segedunum represent one of the most completely excavated forts anywhere in the Roman Empire. The entire plan of the Fort has been laid out so that visitors can walk around it with ease and those looking down on it from the viewing tower can fully appreciate the Fort's layout.

Hadrian’s Wall: View an 80 metre section of original Hadrian’s Wall, standing eight course high in places, to the West of Segedunum.

The Roman Baths: The Roman Baths is the only one of its kind in the country. The Baths are a full sized reconstruction based on original remains discovered at Chesters Roman Fort in the central sector of Hadrian's Wall. The Baths feature authentic frescoed walls, hot and cold plunge baths and replica Roman toilets.

Strong Place: This new display reveals 2000 years of Segedunum, with Romans, coal mining and shipbuilding all leaving their mark on the land and creating the mix we see today.

The Roman Gallery: Discover what life at the Fort was like for the soldiers who lived there; the centre of the Roman gallery is remodelled on the courtyard of the original Fort's headquarters building, with a detailed model of Segedunum, and a reconstruction of a cavalry barrack.

Audio Guides: Travel back in time and listen to stories of what life was like in Roman Britain. Answer puzzling Roman questions with a new audio guide specially designed for children. Audio guides are also available for adults.
Audio guides cost: Adults £2, Children £2, Family £6 (2 adults, 2 children)
