Group Visit information post July 2020 –

We look forward to welcoming groups back to both Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum and have made several adjustments to our sites in order to comply with new recommendations.

As well as the general adjustments, the following changes will apply to group visits up to April 2021.   

  • The Education room and 3D film theatre are open with reduced capacity - 14 in the Education room and 25 in the film theatre.
  • Both Museums are operating on a pre-booking system for visitors to control capacity, we will reduce available capacity for general visitors during your visit. Therefore payment for your visit is required prior to visit and will be non-refundable.
  • Time slots for visits are non-changeable due to the booking system.
  • Group leaders are responsible for ensuring that all members of their party adhere to the social distancing recommendations.

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, April to September, weather permitting). We offer groups of 15 or more a 10% discount. 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. Your group can book exclusive access to the classroom, where they will receive a short lesson in Latin and Roman history from a holographic teacher.  Other displays include Roman Soliders
and the Empire, the Invasion of Britain, Hadrian and Daily Life on the Frontier.  A group of 15 or more 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 though 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.


Packed Lunches - Packed lunches can be pre-ordered using the booking sheet. They include a sandwich, crisps, biscuit and a bottle of water. These can also be added to your booking form.
