PRIVATE JOURNEY 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.
