What To Expect
Stop at Steel Rigg, one of Britain’s richest territories for Roman archeology. Enjoy free time to view and explore Hadrian’s Wall—the immense 73-mile-long (117.5 km) cobbled fortification built by Emperor Hadrian to keep Scottish ‘barbarians’ out of the Roman Empire. Learn more about the Roman presence in ancient Britain and stand where Romans guard did more than a thousand years ago.
Afterwards, stop at Vindolanda where you can explore the museum and grab some lunch (own expense) before heading to Birdoswald for a photo stop. Here, get an up-close look at one of the best preserved Roman forts on Hadrian’s Wall. Hear about the fortification features and some recent excavations that have taken place nearby.
From Birdoswald, begin your return trip, arriving at the drop-off point on Waverly Bridge in the evening.
