NEW All-Weather Play
Our NEW all-weather attraction, Milecastle 62, is almost here!
Opening on Saturday 28 March, Milecastle 62 is a three-level Roman fort that is fully covered to withstand any Cumbrian storm that comes our way.
Clamber the wooden walls and there is so much to explore:
- Climb ropes and slopes to the top turrets
- Balance along tree trunk beams
- Descend to ground level by slide or pole
- Dare to crawl through the top-level transparent tunnel
- Plus so much more!
There is also a fully accessible ramp up to the main Milecastle LXII structure and lookout point. Just don’t forget to fire the ball cannons on your way up!
Designated Under 3s Area
Milecastle’s neighbouring Barbarian Village is the perfect place for pre-schoolers to let off steam!
Tucked around the side of the Animal Barn, with seating also provided, it’s the ideal spot for youngsters to play under the watchful eye of parents.
Experience history come to life at Walby Farm Park!
Did you know we are located on the line of Hadrian’s Wall between Milecastle 62 and Milecastle 63? During the Roman Empire Milecastles were built to control people passing from one side of the wall to the other.
Our Milecastle 62 attraction recreates the history of the site in a fun, interactive play experience for little ones of all ages and abilities.
