Hadrian’s Wall Half Day Tour
On This Day Tour you will discover Tyneside’s section of Hadrian’s Wall, the UNESCO world heritage site and the frontier of the Roman Empire. Hadrian’s wall extended for 80 Roman miles and covered many landscapes. On this half-day tour, we will focus on two of the forts at the east end of the wall – Segedunum and Arbeia. Both forts are home to fantastic reconstructions of the Roman way of life such as the commanding officer’s house and Roman Gatehouse in Arbeia through to a section of the wall which can be walked upon at Segedunum.
You will be able to step into the Roman world and learn about this fantastic, ruthless but creative culture that conquered much of the known world. We will start the tour at Arbeia Roman Fort and explore the site and museum of this multi-cultural settlement where Mesopotamians and Britians married, lived and worked side by side. Explore the fantastic reconstruction of the commanding officer’s house and discover the Mediterranean lifestyle the elite would have experienced. We will then go to the fort of Segedunum now called Wallsend. Home to a mixed cavalry and infantry unit of Belgians called the second cohort of Nervians.
