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.

Campsite Review : stayed here four nights in total. It was a quiet / clean / well kept racecourse site. Stayed over a weekend when it did get busy. There were a few youngsters running around playing but that's what camping's all about to me - they are mostly safe on a campsite, and getting loads of fresh air. All was quiet by just after 9pm. Plus points : the views are lovely. There's a circular walk to the local pub, and a walk into town only takes 45 - 50 minutes (longer on the way back up). We were shown to our pitches by our host, who was always helpful and friendly. I say helpful as we had an issue with our motorhome, and he leant us a stepladder / found us a number for the nearest motorhome dealer / found us pitches (four four nights rather than the expected two as we didn't want to drive the van until the part was available). Also, the loo / shower / laundry block is fairly new which is great. Slightly negative point (and this may relate to covid rules) - the mops for the showers could do with cleaning, and have clean water / spray to help sanitise the shower trays. We would definitely return as it's a good value site, and they kept the loos and showers open when the site re-opened whereas others avoided the risk.

This review is regarding the campsite, rather than the racecourse. On the flyer that is issued to campers, among other things it states "Please respect the privacy of others whilst on the park and keep noise to a minimum." What an absolute joke! We had finished pitching our tent when a party of around a dozen chavs (aged about 4 to 60) turned up. Now, I don't like to judge people on face value and will give people the benefit of the doubt. However, my worst fears were confirmed. They were pitched in two large tents and one fishing tent rather close to us (plus a small red tent which sneaked on later then sneaked off before any staff turned up the following morning) . From the moment they arrived, they never let up with their racket. They had the audacity to ask us if they were too loud, (talk wise or music). We said they were a bit loud so they agreed to switch off their music as we were going to bed shortly (around midnight). However their voices continued and at 01.10am, their repetitive chavvy music was turned back on louder than before. Also, their conversations got louder, swearier & more shouty. This went on until 03.00am when one drunken member of the group said he was going to drive home. At 04.10, an alcohol/drug-fuelled domestic dispute between a rather foul mouthed couple began. Nice! We told the group a few times throughout the night to keep the noise down. At daybreak, the whole brood began to talk louder again without any due care or consideration to other campers. We could also smell cannabis being smoked. I even heard one shout out laughing to his mates to "be quiet or they’ll keep people awake", which received a jeering laugh. This group of individuals should never have been allowed anywhere near a campsite as they obviously can’t behave in a considerate way. The sneering, mocking looks we got proved to us that they knew what they were doing and didn’t care, even after the site manager (when we eventually managed to contact him) had words with them the following morning. They really should have been evicted from the site there and then. Had the group not been due to leave that following morning, we certainly would have packed down our tent and requested a refund for our second night. Some of their party hung around until midday before leaving. We were afraid to leave our tent unattended whilst they were still present as I dread to think what they would have done to our possessions in our absence. Just what we needed when we were already tired, angry and weary at the hands of these idiots. Trying to contact staff "out of hours" or even during daytime hours is nigh-on impossible (either not answering or no voicemail). Most other campsites have an emergency contact number, but not here. The toilets and showers are clean (although water spills on the floor in the shower due to their shape and design) and the view is nice. But if unvetted (and un-evicted) chavs are typical of the clientele that stay there, we will not be back!

I’ve just returned from a two day trip to Northumberland and I just had to visit Hexham races again! It literally is the racecourse in Britain with the finest views. Although it was one of the coldest days of the year i still managed to take shelter in one of their bars, especially the one in the club enclosure as the views from there are outstanding. What I did find interesting was the fact that they don’t have a grandstand, however this doesn’t deter from the what always is a wonderful day out.

We booked for lunch in the Pavilion Restaurant. It was billed as a carvery which doesn’t usually excite much enthusiasm but the thought of a table for the whole afternoon won us over. The service was great, from the waiter to the chef to the race course manager, everyone took the time to speak to us and ensure we were having a good time. A table by the window meant that we had a great view of the racing too. The food was delicious - starters included poached salmon; small tartlettes filled with pate; pork pies; crab, salmon and prawn Marie rose; mini quiches and salads. The carvery main course was gammon or roast beef with delicious roast potatoes and lots of veg and there was also a good selection of desserts and cheese and biscuits. A lovely afternoon out, we would highly recommend it but make sure you bring warm clothes to the winter meetings, the racecourse is on the top of the hill and it was mighty cold when we came out.
