Housesteads Roman Fort – Hadrian's Wall

Housesteads Roman Fort – Hadrian's Wall

Where's the oldest toilet in Britain?

It's at Housesteads Roman Fort! This antique latrine is located along Hadrian's Wall and recalls a time when the long arm of the Roman Empire reached all the way into Britain.

Join a tour of this ancient wonder and explore the crumbled barracks and hospital ruins in perfect Roman military tortoise-formation (or simply walk normally). Marvel at artefacts in the museum and savour some epic countryside scenery.
