About Segedunum Roman Fort 

Segedunum Roman Fort stands as a lasting testimony to the awesome power of the Roman Empire. It was the last link in the chain of fortifications which stretched across the country and formed the mighty boundary of Hadrian’s Wall.

For almost 300 years Segedunum, which means ‘strong fort’ was home to 600 Roman Soldiers. Today Segedunum is once again the gateway to this famous world heritage site. Guests can enjoy the modern visitor centre with interactive computer simulations and view the remains of the Fort from the viewing tower.
