The imposing West Gate is one of the first things you notice walking up to Arbeia.
The iconic building has been reconstructed using research that was undertaken following excavations at Arbeia.
It stands where it once would've been during the Roman occupation of Britain.
Walk inside the towers and you'll discover the history of Arbeia from prehistoric times right up to the present day. Make sure to check out a model of the Fort and the Roman armoury. Then 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.
