Fodor's Review

For a good introduction to Britain's Roman history, dip into this museum. It includes the remains of the substantial Roman fort of Segedunum, built around AD 125, as well as part of the original Hadrian's Wall. There's also a reconstructed Roman bath complex and an observation tower. The collection of artifacts covers the whole 300-year period of Roman occupation in the region, including pieces of weaponry, armor, and a Roman stone toilet—the only one surviving in the country. Segedunum is near the Wallsend Metro station.
