Do as the Romans did in Corbridge

Originally a wealthy Roman town known to locals as Coria, the remains are now looked after by English Heritage and, with its museum, offers a fascinating glimpse into the area's early years. With its boutique shops, Corbridge is very much alive and well, but history buffs will get the most out of this fascinating area of Northumberland.
