Live Like A Roman
During this tour you will experience what it is like to march along the Roman Wall that once marked the northern boundary of The Roman Empire. Walk at your own pace, enjoying the stunning vistas of the National Park, and discover the remains of Hadrian’s Wall, a milecastle, and the vallum, a defence ditch south of the wall.
Along the way, you will discover what life was like on this frontier 2000 years ago.
After your ‘march’ along the wall, pitch a Roman marching tent, made from leather goat hides. Once you are nestled cosily inside your atmospheric tent, tuck into a delicious Roman themed light lunch. Some dishes will be familiar, some unusual, some you will need to try a few times.
After lunch you will de-camp.
