Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum

Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum in Wallsend is part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site.

The gateway to Hadrian's Wall, Segedunum is the most excavated fort along the wall. A 35-metre viewing tower provides some outstanding views across the site and there's a large interactive museum packed with things to learn. 

Segedunum Fort, which literally means ‘Strong Fort’, is one of Hadrian’s Wall’s major gateways. The wall was built to protect the Roman Empire from the barbarian’s attacks, and Segedunum was used as one of the garrisons on its eastern part for 300 years.

The site is one of the biggest forts with surviving foundations and contains a lot of the original fort’s excavated ruins. You'll have the opportunity to visit a reconstructed bath house, as well as the museum which contains a really interesting collection representing the 300 years of occupation.

Visitors from around the world come to visit this part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site and you could be one of them! Click here for more information.
