Following the latest government recommendations, we will be closed until 1st May.

England’s past is full of stories of hope in the face of adversity, and of people coming together to overcome all kinds of challenges. Although we won’t be able to share those stories with you in person over the coming weeks, we’ll continue to share them on our social media.

During this time we’re keeping open our free-to-enter sites which are unstaffed and have large open spaces. You can find a list of all our free-to-enter sites here: https://eht.social/2DAm3dH

Among the northernmost urban centres in the Roman Empire, Aldborough was the 'capital' of the Romanised Brigantes, the largest tribe in Britain. One corner of the defences is laid out amid a Victorian arboretum, and two mosaic pavements can be viewed in their original positions. The site museum has an outstanding collection of Roman finds, a handling collection of Roman objects, and other 'hands-on' aids for children and families.
