Our guided tours are given by our amazing volunteer guides, they all start from outside the museum entrance. They take place every Saturday, Sunday & Wednesday as well as bank holidays 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.
