  • Dan

    Housesteads is the most complete Roman fort that survives in Britain. Set high on a dramatic escarpment on Hadrian's Wall, there are spectacular panoramic views from this point. As the fort is so well-preserved, you can walk through ancient barrack blocks and the hospital and peer into the oldest toilet you will see.
