The Roman Tour

The Roman Tour

The Roman Tour details the recent discovery of a Roman Bathhouse and the location of the largest fort on Hadrian's Wall. You will then travel to Willowford, now owned by English Heritage (no extra charge) and have time to explore the Wall. This walk is self guided and takes you alongside what is considered to be one of the longest and best preserved sections of this 1900 year old frontier Wall. The ruins of two turrets can be seen and information on the Wall's history with images of how the Wall may have looked is stated at each section. Hadrian's Wall was not only built across land but also spanned rivers and this tour takes in two of the three river crossings. The walk takes approximately one hour and we suggest you wear appropriate and sensible clothing and footwear for walking through the beautiful but sometimes wet and muddy countryside.

Duration – allow up to two hours and 30 minutes (traffic depending)
Price - £120 for the exclusive use of the vehicle for up to three passengers
