Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum, Wallsend

Ruin · Historic Site
Marking the eastern end of Hadrian’s Wall at Wallsend, Segedunum Roman Fort & Museum is one of the most fully excavated fort sites anywhere in the Roman Empire. Once home to 600 Roman soldiers who guarded the frontier against barbarian attack for almost 300 years, the site features the remains of the original Roman fort, an interactive museum, and full-scale reconstructions of a bath house (currently externally viewed only) and a section of Wall. The 35 metre high viewing tower provides outstanding views across this UNESCO World Heritage Site and the River Tyne, in a place of great historical significance, both ancient and contemporary.

  • I have been here on many occasions - sometimes as an individual or at other times with parties of school children. Plenty to see and do. You realise how advanced the Romans were in some aspects of life and so primitive in other ways - notably human rights. Something for everyone. Good viewing gallery. Well signed on roads. Very impressive entrance. Take you time in the museum as often people just move on without reading about Roman life and their thinking.
