Hadrian’s Wall guided tours

Hadrian’s Wall introductory tour from Carlisle

Hadrian’s Wall stands as testimony to one of the Roman world’s greatest emperors.  This one-day tour provides a full introduction to Hadrian’s Wall through a balanced mix of site visits and short walks. You will see examples of all the different types of fortifications along Hadrian’s Wall – turrets, milecastles, fort, the north ditch, vallum and remains of a Roman bridge – to leave you with a thorough understanding of how the Wall operated.

Words cannot express our appreciation for a truly wonderful and informative day with you on Hadrian’s Wall.

Hadrian’s Wall scenic walk & Vindolanda

If you prefer to stride out on one of the most scenic sections of Hadrian’s Wall, this tour includes a 3-mile (4.5 km) walk from Steel Rigg to Housesteads Fort, together with an afternoon visit to the incomparable Vindolanda – the only fort in the Hadrian’s Wall corridor undergoing complete excavation.

‘Anna brought history to life in a personal and engaging way and, more impressively, sparked the interest of our two sons who would rather play video games than visit historic sites!

Hadrian’s Wall turrets and temples

A tour looking at some of the less well-known aspects of Hadrian’s Wall.   Starting at Housesteads, we walk to Sewingshields Crags and its links with King Arthur. At Brocolitia we view a Mithraic Temple and learn about its fascinating associations with ancient astrology. Limestone Corner captures a moment in time when the Romans were defeated by the hardness of the underlying rock. Finally, we end the day at Chesters Fort and its wonderful bath-house.

‘Thank you for a wonderful day and for giving so much of yourself and your knowledge to us.  We loved being with you.’
