I hadn't been to Housteads for 20+ years so it was high time for a visit. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were lucky to arrive just in time for the 11am guided tour. Guide (Glen I think) was very knowledgeable. I knew everything about the...More

Amazing to see the fort here and lots of information provided as well - staff were friendly and the parking/facilities were good too. Great place to go on a long walk!

Having already visited Vindolanda we were already slightly Romaned out! But we enjoyed a pleasant hour wandering around the site before walking along the wall back to Once Brewed.

Visited on a rainy chilly day-but was still worth it! Very large excavated Roman site on side of very steep hill, which gave a good view of the valley below.

It's on the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall and they can't bother to have a proper tearoom or coffeeshop. People are driving miles to see this and the experience is average. And no toilets near the fort? Come on English Heritag/National Trust. This is...More

Hi, Dogs on leads are allowed everywhere except in the museum. There are loops in the walls of the museum if owners want to tie their dogs to them while they look around inside, and a bowl of water to keep their dogs... More
