The Romans Ride Again

Come and see the riders and horses of Hadrian’s Cavalry. With authentically recreated armour and saddlery our display evokes the men and their mounts who patrolled the Wall.

Hadrian’s Cavalry explores the role and daily life of the Roman army’s cavalry forces in a unique wall-wide exhibition that stretches the full 150 miles of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site area – from Maryport in the west to South Shields in the east.

Hadrian’s Cavalry is funded primarily through Arts Council England’s Museum Resilience Fund and managed by a partnership of heritage organisations from across Hadrian’s Wall.
