One of the best preserved Roman forts in Britain, Housesteads boasts spectacular views. Located halfway along Hadrian’s Wall there are magnificent ruins to explore – including granaries, barracks, a hospital and even a multi-seated latrine. There is also a small Museum, which shows how Housesteads looked in Roman times.
