Guided tour of the Roman fort at Maryport

Details

The earthworks of the Roman fort at Maryport is found in a field next to the Senhouse Roman Museum. The majority of the finds in the museum were recovered from the fort and the adjacent civilian settlement from 1570 onwards. The tours are an opportunity to walk to the footsteps of the Romans and understand the structure and purpose of the fort. Tours start at 2pm and 3.30pm and are led by a volunteer guide. The fort is in a field and the ground can be uneven and wet either during or following rain. Suitable footwear should be worn. No dogs (except registered assistance and guide dogs) are allowing on the tours due to sheep. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
