Key Info:
Located in Aldborough, 0.75 mile South East of Boroughbridge, on a minor road off B6265 within 1 mile of junction of A1 and A6055. (OS Map 99; ref SE 405662).

Description:
Aldborough, among the northernmost urban centres in the Roman Empire, succeeded Stanwick as the tribal stronghold of the Romanised Brigantes, the largest tribe in Britain. One corner of the defences is clearly laid out amid the towering trees of a Victorian arboretum, a tranquil place for picnics. Two almost complete mosaic pavements can be viewed in their original position, and the site museum's fine collection of Roman finds make this the best place in Yorkshire to study the Romans. There is a handling collection of real and replica Roman objects, mosaic-making kits, and a 'tree box' for the arboretum.

Opening Times:
Check the English Heritage website for details.

Dog Restrictions:
