School Visits

We have a long tradition of welcoming all types of groups and schools to our two sites of Roman Vindolanda and The Roman Army Museum here in the fabulous central section of Hadrian's Wall. Many have caught the Vindolanda and Roman Army Museum bug and return again and again. Whether you are a teacher looking for ideas and curriculum support or a coach tour operator planning new packages or routes we are here to help with our decades of experience dealing with your individual needs. 

At Roman Vindolanda, we not only offer groups access to some of the best preserved Roman remains on Hadrian’s Wall but groups can come and see archaeology in action (Mon-Fri, Easter-end of August, weather permitting). We offer groups of more than 15 a 10% discount and a 20 minute introductory talk with our educational staff (Mon-Fri). Your group will also get to see some of the finest Roman artefacts in Britain including a selection of the world famous ink on wood writing tablets. 

In the spacious indoor Roman Army Museum, groups can explore the life of a Roman soldier through many different interpretive styles including the award winning Edge of Empire 3D film which follows the new recruit Aquila and his life on Hadrian’s Wall. Other displays include Roman Soldiers and the Empire, the Invasion of Britain, Hadrian and daily life on the frontier. A group of more than 15 also receive a 10% discount if you book for this museum.

If you would like to make a fabulous day out on Hadrian’s Wall you can book both sites and receive a 20% discount off the admission. A 15 minute coach drive through fabulous Northumbrian countryside links the two site and if desired, groups can access Hadrian’s Wall at Walltown Crags, just a short walk from the Roman Army Museum.
