Housesteads Roman fort (Vercovicium)

Housestead’s fort is only 2 miles from High Shield and is the best preserved of the sixteen outposts along Hadrian’s Wall. It has spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, a museum and ruins that include the four double-portal gateways and perimeter wall, granaries, barracks, under floor heating system and some of the earliest known flushing toilets.

After visiting Housesteads Roman fort, why not explore more of Hadrian's Wall and experience the romance of this famous monument? Now a World Heritage Site, Hadrian's Wall spans 73 miles of beautiful British countryside. Walk around the many forts, turrets and mile castles that span the Wall, and absorb 2,000 years of history.
