Get up close and personal with ancient Roman history in Northeast England on this full-day walking tour. Our journey along Hadrian's wall takes us past milecastles and forts as we explore this wild frontier.

What to expect?

Hadrian’s Wall, the UNESCO world heritage site and the frontier of the Roman Empire, is ready to be explored. Discover the varied lives of the troops stationed on the wall.

Starting at Steel Rig we will walk the 2 1/2 miles to the Roman fort of Housesteads. This walk will enable you to see the wall, discover its milecastles and see the wild geography of the frontier. Housesteads is the most complete of Roman forts in Britain and gives you a fantastic view of Roman life on Hadrian’s wall. During the Roman period, it was called Vercovicium and was fortified by Germanic troops from Belgium and the Netherlands.

After visiting the fort we stop for lunch at twice brewed. We will then proceed to Vindolanda. Vindolanda was a Roman supply base and has been extensively excavated providing us with in-depth information on the people who lived on the wall. This tour is great for those who love history, wish to discover more about the Romans and enjoy country walks.

What is included?

  • Entry to Houseteads and Vindolanda Roman Forts.
  • Collection from 9 am onwards from your accommodation or a centralised location on the day. Please contact us with information of where you are staying.
