The Venue

Walltown is a hidden gem at the south west corner of Northumberland National Park, surrounded by tall crags around a large hollow left after quarrying. Here you can see how Hadrian’s Wall was built on the sheer north-facing edge of a great wave of volcanic rock.

Roman Army Museum

Included in the ticket cost is FREE entry to the Roman Army Museum. 

The Roman Army Museum is located next to Walltown Country Park and one of the most complete sections of Hadrian’s Wall.  The museum is full of interactive and engaging displays and uses stunning real 3D technology in a specially designed film theatre and interactive displays enable visitors to understand what life was like for soldiers on this northern frontier.

This accessible museum has its own Latin classroom with a teacher who emerges from the past via a hologram to give an entertaining lesson in maths and morals.  The museum also houses unique Roman artefacts such as the only surviving Roman helmet crest and a set of four hipposandals (Roman horse shoes).
