Itinerario

Usciti da Edimburgo vi dirigerete verso Sud, con una sosta a Jedburgh, storica cittadina di confine dove potrete ristorarvi e ammirare i resti della celebre abbazia agostiniana.

Attraverserete il confine a Carter Bar, sul limitare delle Cheviot Hills, un luogo dove si respirano settecento anni di storia.

Da qui passerete per il Northumberland National Park fino a raggiungere Steel Rigg, dove potrete ammirare da vicino il Vallo di Adriano. Dopo pranzo il viaggio continua lungo il Vallo: la guida vi consiglierà sui luoghi più affascinanti da visitare.

Avrete tempo di osservare il Vallo o i resti di uno dei numerosi insediamenti romani prima di ritornare verso Nord, attraversare le Galloway Hills e fare sosta nella località termale vittoriana di Moffat. Passando tra le Sothern Uplands e gli Scottish Borders, sarete di ritorno a Edimburgo intorno alle 19.

Itinerary (English)

You travel on old Roman Dere Street, which linked the supply ports of the south of England up to modern day Scotland.

Your first stop on this tour is the border town of Jedburgh, a historic burgh dominated by a magnificent 12th century Augustinian Abbey.

On arrival in Jedburgh you may have time to take a short walk through the narrow streets and visit this impressive ruin.

Continuing south we make a stop at the scenic Carter Bar on the edge of the Cheviot Hills. This crossing point between Scotland and England runs close to the ancient Roman road and has formed the border between the two countries for the past 700 years.

The tour continues through the magnificent forests of Northumberland National Park before turning west towards Hadrian’s Wall.

We follow the road that takes us along the south side of the wall, stopping at Steel Rigg. You have time to walk beside the wall and experience the isolation that Roman foot soldiers would have experienced as they guarded their empire from the ‘barbarians’ to the north.

We recently got back from a family vacation in Scotland. We went on the Hadrians Wall 1 day tour with our family and enjoyed every second. Douglas was brilliant. Extremely knowledgeable and answered any questions you had from soup to nuts. Fantastic story teller and really engaged the group. I would recommend this tour to anyone with a passion for history.

Hadrians Wall

Rich Linda H. Posted on 29/06/2016

Thanks for a memorable one-day tour. The travel time was filled with history, music, and humor. Fergus was a wonderful guide. We learned much about the past and current life of the Wall. The stop at Jedburgh was a great beginning. It would have been nice to have had a little more time there. Vindolanda was a spectacular site to see and a great place for lunch. It was very helpful to have Fergus give us tips and local referrals to follow-up with after the tour ended. Glad to have been part of the experience and would do it again.

FAQs

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

Do you take children on your tours?

We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.

You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.

How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.

I have more questions, who can help me?
