West Gate
Open during museum opening hours.



The imposing West Gate is one of the first things you notice walking

up to Arbeia.



This iconic building has been reconstructed using research that was

undertaken following excavations at Arbeia.



It stands where it originally existed during the Roman occupation of

Britain.



Explore the towers to discover the history of Arbeia from prehistoric

times right up to the present day. Discover the model of the Fort and

the Roman armoury, and head to the top of the Gate and feel what it

was like to be a soldier on duty guarding the entrance to the River

Tyne.



2018 marked 30 years since this stunning Roman reconstruction was

recreated.
