If you or your group are looking for a personal guided tour of our Vindolanda site please see below for a list of local guides who are able to provide you with this service independently from the Vindolanda Trust.

These tours will need to be arranged by you with the company of your choice. If you are bringing a group, you will still need to book your visit through our Group Booking system.

Please note that booking a personal tour with an external provider is separate from admission to Roman Vindolanda and the Vindolanda Trust does not take responsibility for your interactions with the independent provider. If you are looking to join one of our free public tours of the site, given by Volunteer Guides, you can find the schedule for those on our Guided Tours at Vindolanda event page.

Ancient Britain

Ancient Britain’s award-winning Hadrian’s Wall guided tours transport you back 2000 years to a time when Hadrian’s Wall was a frontier, a place where two cultures collided.
Our local guides, dressed in authentic costumes of the era, weave a narrative from both sides of the wall.
