Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian's Wall Small Group Day Tour from Edinburgh

411 reviews
Take the stress out of planning your own way to Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian’s Wall on a guided tour that includes round-trip transport from Edinburgh. Letting someone else drive between the dispersed landmarks allows you to focus on the scenery rather than the road. Plus, exploring the attractions with a guide means you are party to historical commentary that brings the landmarks to life.

A really enjoyable visit and look back in our history. What a massive area it is. Well laid out and just about enough signage. Museum was ok. Well worth a visit

This is a great place to appreciate the scale of the Roman Occupation of England. It is a huge site with masses of information boards at each of the “ buildings”. The bath house at the bottom of the site is well worth a look, it isn’t on the scale of that in Bath but it makes you realise how important cleanliness was even in the far reaches of the Roman Empire. The staff on site are really friendly, and they have put in place appropriate Covid measures to keep everyone safe, but once you are out of the immediate entrance area you are free to wander at will. The museum is more like a repository of random finds but worth a look.

Such a fascinating site - a real journey back in time. They desperately need more people to visit - numbers of visitors have dwindled away due to the pandemic. As an outside site with open air, I’d highly recommend a viewing and their safety measures are perfect. Make it a ‘must see’ destination and there will be no disappointment. English Heritage needs our urgent support. There is a small cafe, gift shop and very interesting museum.

Visited here as part of a tour of Northumberland. The place was really interesting, with plenty to see. The place is really well set out due to the Covid restrictions. Plenty of useful information about when it was a Roman Fort, and a lot of good exhibits to see in the Clayton Museum.

It is over 40 years since we last visited and not much has changed - as if it would! Our personal knowledge of the Roman occupation has increased in the intervening years and we have seen many examples across the country and in Europe of Roman building so this site did not hold anything new for us BUT it is still an impressive place to see and to recognize the very best elements of Roman planning from the early conquest through to the latter years of occupation. The site itself beside the river was bathed in sunshine and it was hard to imagine what it would have been like to be sent here on duty in the depths of winter (unless you happened to get the commandant's centrally heated quarters. When the Roman period is on the curriculum in school, take the grandchildren, there will love that first visit. The guides are enthusiastic and encourage you to wander around. The site is well kept and steps were in place to try and ensure social distancing.
