Roman Experiences

It isn’t just a wall; it’s Roman life stretching across Europe from  Rome itself....

.... Perhaps you’ve not been for a while, or not at all, or want something extra for your visit. There’s plenty more to see than stones, and great places to eat and stay if you want to make a day of it or stop over. It’s worth the journey.

SegedunumStart at Segedunum or Wallsend, there’s a great hands-on exploratory for kids to play their way to Hadrian’s time, a big screen story how the landscape grew from prehistoric times till now, with a view down onto the graving docks of the old Swan Hunter yards.

Or Tullie House, Carlisle, discover the Wall was part of a frontier across Europe to the Balkans. A treat of a café to take tea on a peaceful terrace and enjoy the sun, while across the way is Carlisle Castle, originally medieval but re-using stones robbed from the Wall.

Roman Army MuseumIf you’re walking between mile-castles and forts it’s ten minutes to the Roman Army Museum between Gisland and Haltwhistle to experience the Imperial Purple in 3-D cinema, then follow the life of the lads based along the Edge of Empire.

It isn’t just a wall....
