A trip down memory lane to days out at Arbeia.

A trip down memory lane to South Shields Roman Fort Arbeia

It’s a great place for a day out, so what better way to mark the Easter holidays than with a trip to Arbeia.

We have taken a trip down memory lane to days out of old at the roman fort in South Shields - see if you can spot yourself or anyone you know having fun in our bygone days pictures. If you have a memory to share, get in touch with our nostalgia correspondent Peter French here.
