Attraction Information:


An excavated section, part cut into rock, of the ramparts of the huge Iron Age trading and power-centre of the Brigantes, the most important tribe in pre- Roman northern Britain.
Some 4 miles long, the defences enclosed an area of 766 acres. Following Roman conquest, the Brigantian centre moved to Aldborough Roman Site.

Plan a Great Day Out

Make your visit to Stanwick part of a day out in history. A few miles away are the remains of Piercebridge Roman Bridge, which once carried a Roman road over the River Tees.
Take in the stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales from the ramparts of Richmond Castle, or take a picnic to the tranquil remains of Egglestone Abbey.
