Being frustrated with the price for single entry into English Heritage sites we recently took the plunge for family meembership. We are now ticking off the list of "maybe" sites that previously didn't warrant the relatively high cost of a one day trip, Birdoswald being one. Unfortunately I must say I would be disappointed if I had paid single entry to get in.
HOWEVER! The big plus is a small good quality and inexpensive cafe, and you dont actually need to go into Birdoswald to use! (though you would have to pay for parking). W are beginning to find that English Heritage sites often have very high qaulity and not terribly expensive food, though a cafe is not present everywhere.
Top tip, visit nearby Cawfields for the grand sum of £1 parking fee if you just want to visit a nice stretch of wall and a milecastle in a pleasant setting.
