Hadrian’s Wall Guided Coach Tour 2021

Tour Details

Hear about Carlisle Luguvalium, the Stanegate and the Wall Fort Uxellodunum as you leave the city. The tour through the north Cumbria landscape of the UNESCO World Heritage Site includes wonderful scenery along the route of Hadrian’s Wall such as Lanercost Priory and across the Irthing Valley.

The tour includes a 1-hour guided walk along the National Trail from Birdoswald to Gilsland alongside Wall remains and earth works. Moderate fitness, walking shoes/boots and warm, waterproof clothing are essential to join the tour. Alternatively, stay with the coach and visit Birdoswald Fort or enjoy a tea break before re-joining the coach to meet up with the group at the end of their walk.

This year we are including a visit to the Roman Army Museum, where you will be thrilled with the audio visual presentations.  We continue into the National Park to see the Vallum at Cawfields and to pass the highest point on the Wall.  Finally, for a fantastic conclusion of our Hadrian’s Wall Guided Coach Tour experience, entry is included to the award winning Vindolanda Fort and Museum where a new Gallery has recently opened and exciting archaeological excavations are currently taking place.

Top experiences say our passengers:

  • The guided walk alongside the Wall remains.
