Anyone with an interest in either Roman or British history would be in their element at Vindolanda, an extensive Roman fort and settlement on Hadrian's wall. The stone foundations of the site remain so you get a good idea of the layout of Roman forts....More

Even though it was blowing a gale and my hands were freezing inside my gloves this place was worth the visit. Really extensive and interesting.

The museum at Vindolanda is wonderful. Some of the artefacts found on sight can’t be seen anywhere else. Right up there with the best roman sites I have visited and I’ve seen a few. £11 for the joint site ticket is brilliant value.

A very interesting attraction, the value of the finds at Vindolanda should not be underestimated. Possibly not the most attractive venue on a cold, wet and blustery December day, but still enjoyable. Recommend combining with the Roman Military Museum and a lunch stop at the...More

First I’ll just start with the downside.. we were confused if this was actually Hadrian’s Wall or a replica. Looks like other reviewers were as well. It seems it’s a site near Hadrian’s Wall. Nonetheless, it was done beautifully! There are some breathtaking views, a...More

The entrance was basic and didn’t fill us with hope but it just got better and better. The Romans chose a perfect spot with gorgeous views and an attractive, fast flowing river. Seeing the ruins and the layers of history and being able to walk...More

Even under the snow the place is impressive. The museum is very well made and the high point of the visit are the famous “tablets” discovered and the transcription made. Large collection of coins, loop videos, narrations.... they got it all!
