The centrepiece of Segedunum is a 35 metre high viewing tower which gives stunning views of the excavated Fort, the River Tyne and the surrounding area.

Set against this dramatic backdrop, watch 2,000 years of history unfold as an amazing computer generated story chronicles the changes at Wallsend from Roman times and the building of the Fort to the growth of heavy industry on the River Tyne.
