Aldborough Roman Town

Historic Site/Structure


For an interesting day out visit Aldborough Roman Town. One of the most northern administrative and trading centres in the Roman Empire. Aldborough (then Isurium Brigantum) was the 'capital' of the Romanised Brigantes, the largest tribe in Britain.

One corner of this fascinating part of Yorkshire history is laid out in the English Heritage 'Aldborough Roman Town' site amid a Victorian arboretum. Two mosaic pavements can be viewed in their original positions. 

The site's recently updated and fascinating museum has an outstanding collection of Roman finds.

Don’t Miss:

  • The on-site museum and uncover the Roman history of Isurium Brigantum
  • The two fantastic roman mosaics 
  • Roman and post roman archaeological finds, some from recents digs
  • A section of the original town wall

Please note the site is closed for the winter months from 1st October - 31st March
