Our guided tours are given by our amazing volunteer guides, they all start from outside the museum entrance and start at 11am & 1pm. 

The tours will take you through some of the history of the site and of Magna and how it came to be the site it is today. From the Romans to the Border Reivers and farmers to the Vindolanda Trust, the journey of this Roman fort is exciting and of course still ongoing. There is currently research taking place to understand the impact that climate change is having on the preservation of the archaeology below the surface to find out more visit our Magna Appeal page.


Please Note:

  • These tours are across rugged and sometimes boggy terrain without paths. If you would like to attend please wear suitable clothing and footwear for walking through fields.
  • Some fields may have livestock in them.
  • There are very little visible remain of Magna fort but the history is fascinating.

This tour is recommended for older children due to the terrain, any children must be supervised by an adult and behave responsibly around livestock.
