A nicely presented excavation. You are directed to it if you are walking the wall but if you use the car park it can't be seen untill you have gone over the remains of the fort.

Original trip advisor location incorrect - this is 3 miles from Chesters Fort. Situated a 3 min walk from a good car park (cost £1) it’s an interesting insight into what the actual lay of the land would have been without modern changes, and you...More

A beautiful temple but the english heritage page has little to say about it. Please read a little about the "soldiers god" before you visit, as this site will then make much more sense.We loved it.

We visited Brocolita (or "Procolitia") on a sunny June day. There is not much to see, just a grass covered mound, but you can get an impression of the position and size. Be aware its a pay and display car park presently £1 per hour.

We stopped here while walking from Housesteads to Chollerford on Hadrian's Wall last summer. It is close to the wall path and there is a small car park nearby. It took about ten minutes to walk around and look at the statues and see the...More

This well preserved glimpse into the deeply personal religious side of Roman life is a must see. If you are hiking it's free (no car parking fees) and is directly on the path. It's also the only area of shelter for a good while around....More

One of the purest and most evocative glimpses into the Roman history of the area, with a true sense of the past and a real respect for the simplicity of the temple. People still leave offerings here, though (sadly) the three altars are copies of...More

Best example of a Temple of Mithras among the wall forts, the alters are copies the originals being in the Great North museum which is well worth a visit

I've been coming back to this place for 45 years and I'm only 52, apart from the intriguing lumps and bumps of the fort, where you can just about piece together a layout, and the cutest little mithraeum; if you walk a bit further there's...More

Hi Hannah the Mithras Temple is not a hotel! at least not the one I reviewed. The Mithras Temple (I think there is a spelling mistake on Trip Advisor) is a small area in the middle of a soggy field/s just off the main... More
