DISCOVER YOUR PRIVATE HADRIAN'S WALL EXPERIENCE
A private Hadrian’s Wall experience taking you to some of the highlights along the Roman Frontier with a knowledgeable tour guide by your side.
Discover a mix of sightseeing, history & custom hike along Hadrian’s Wall giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself into life “on the wall”…
Hadrian’s Wall marks the final frontier of the Roman Empire. It stretches 72 miles long from the Solway Coast to the River Tyne. The wall was built under the orders of the Roman Emperor Hadrian who was in charge of the Empire from AD117 to AD138.
During this tour you will be led by an experienced, knowledgeable guide and taken to various parts of the wall where you will get some great viewpoints, scenery and gain an insight into life in Roman Britain. Also, visit Vindolanda Roman Fort – one of the highlights of your tour. The museum gives you a fascinating insight into life on the edge… The fort is one of several and has been extensively excavated.
Finally, end your tour with a visit to Corbridge – one of the most beautiful villages on the banks of the river Tyne and formerly a Roman frontier town.

YOUR PERSONAL ITINERARY
Begin your journey in Newcastle and discover the true starting point of Hadrian's Wall in AD122.
Travel west into Northumberland - make a short stop on the way at Heddon-on-the-Wall. Here you be able to get a first glimpse of how this mighty wall was made up!
Enter the Northumberland National Park and the most amazing stretches along Hadrian's Wall - the scenery, views and history is stunning! We don't want to say "take a hike" but please do! You can custom your walk as you wish - length and difficulty, your choice! Your guide will be able to assist with your decision.
Continue to Vindolanda Roman Fort & enjoy a well-earned break & lunch. Discover the fort - one of our absolute favourite along this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site extensively excavated and still archaeologists flock here each year (with any luck we will get the chance to speak to excavators as they work). Whilst walking through the ruins, you’ll get great insight into the lives of the people who lived here during (and after) Roman times.
On your return, pop into the beautiful (former Roman fort) village of Corbridge. Here you can enjoy a visit into the Anglo-Saxon church or browse in one of the many boutique shops.
