Overview
Walk along the iconic central section of Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. 2000 years ago this was a frontier, a place where two cultures collided. Your guide can happily weave a narrative from both the Roman perspective and the native perspective, providing both viewpoints. In addition to seeing Hadrian’s Wall, on this guided tour you will see a Milecastle, and one of the best sections of the Vallum defence ditch. Cawfields also boasts some of the best views across the rugged moorland vistas of the Northumberland National Park.

It’s not only the Wall! This guy tells you of the surrounding area, miles beyond the Wall and it’s purpose, bringing it all to life with his enthusiasm and knowledge. Well done Kevin. A fantastic day out. Include the museum tour if you go on this trip.
