Frankly what this tiny temple represents is far more important than what it looks like! It is the only Mithraeum you can see along Hadrian's Wall and worth pausing for that. Also the mobile coffee van stops nearby in the morning until 12 noon! But...More

Not very well signposted on maps or on the road but well worth the visit. It is a short walk from the car park but not visible from the car park itself. The information board has seen better days and definitely needs an upgrade. The...More

Leave a votive offering for one of the ancient world's most secretive cult figures and get to feel like a Roman officer!

If you're nearby, stop and check out this ruin. Having hiked here from Housesteads, I actually enjoyed this more. It's tiny in comparison, but there's just something special about it. Make sure to stop at the tea-van in the parking lot.

Walking the Hadrian's Wall Path we were diverted past this temple, one of a kind and definitely work a quick look.

An interesting 10 minute diversion while walking the Hadrian's Wall Path. There's only really foundations left (hardly surprising after 1700 years or so) but some decent information available. Very good coffee from the van outside

The temple is a very short walk from the Brocolitia car park - go and see it! Fascinating that a Persian deity might be worshipped in cold Britain.

As the only part of the Carrawburgh fort that remains is a small rockpile, you may not want to stop along the Hadrian's wall route along the B6138. However, this is well worth it. The Temple of Mithras is amazingly intact, all things (and sheep)...More
