The Segedunum Roman Fort is the most excavated and developed Fort along the famous Hadrian's Wall and features a 35m high observation tower providing outstanding views across this impressive World Heritage Site, an amazing back drop for your family photo!
The site now also boasts a large interactive museum showcasing Roman artifacts found in the excavations between the 70s and the new millennium, ranging from the only known surviving stone toilet seat to accurate models of the Carpathia and HMS Comus, plus a recreated section of Hadrian's Wall itself. Kids can also get hands on with a bust of the Emperor Hadrian, a building model and some replica Roman fabrics.
You can also step out and explore the Roman Garden and Colliery (that's the coal mine to you and I) and if you're taking a group you can book a guided tour.
There are lifts and level access throughout the museum and loos on several levels plus baby changing through the reception area. There are benches around the gardens too, so all in all it's pretty easy to bring the kids here!
