Details

The tour is even greater value this year, one hour longer allowing time to see and explore more of The World Heritage Site. The tour includes a 45min walk along Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail; voted the best experience of the tour by passengers in 2015 & 2016. Walking shoes or boots are essential. Passengers not joining the walk may enjoy a tea break in Birdoswald Farmhouse Tearoom before you are taken to re-join the group.

Enjoy a visit to Housesteads Roman Fort Visitor Centre for lunch or to allow the more athletic to climb up to the Wall and Fort and see some wonderful views from the Whin Sill.

Finally, for a fantastic finish to our Hadrian’s Wall tour, entry is included to the award winning Vindolanda Fort and Museum where exciting excavations are currently taking place.

Please Remember:
Wear sensible walking shoes/boots and carry warm, showerproof clothing. Refreshments are widely available but packed lunches allow more time to explore.

We regret that we are not able to welcome dogs on the Tour Bus (ex guide dogs).
