THINGS TO DO
Situated in the Tyne valley and surrounded by rolling Northumberland hills, Corbridge was once a bustling town and supply base for Roman citizens to collect food and supplies. Over the course of 350 years it developed from a strategic military fort into a bustling, cosmopolitan town, where civilians, tradespeople and craftsmen rubbed shoulders with soldiers and officers on their way to Hadrian’s Wall. You can discover the Corbridge Hoard, housed at the museum, one of the most significant finds in Roman history, the museum is also home to the Corbridge Collection, the largest of the Hadrian’s Wall’s collections.
Corbridge boasts some of the best shopping in the region. You can find fashion, art and crafts, gifts and more. There are several independent clothes and shoe shops as well as beauticians and hairdressers. It is an area renowned for the arts; there are several galleries, craft, fabric and interior design shops, art suppliers and antique and vintage emporiums.
