Walk in the footsteps of a great army
from The Northumberland National Park is a fantastic venue for your next school trip. Staying in a new, state of the art hostel, you will be ideally placed to visit the historic sites of Hadrian’s Wall Heritage Site, the Roman fort of Vindolanda, Housesteads and the Roman Army Museum. The Wall, measuring almost 80 miles, from coast to coast, was built by a force of 15,000 men in less than six years. It is an astounding feat of engineering, and there are milecastles, barracks, ramparts and forts to explore. Hadrian’s Wall is a unique, must-see monument and a remarkable place to experience.
Arrive by coach and settle into your accommodation. Spend the afternoon exploring Hadrian’s Wall Heritage site. There is plenty to do each night, Northumberland National Park Authority offer a great range of activities including geology, geography dark skies and astronomy, delivered by their own staff and selected local partners.
In the morning we head first of all to Housestead’s to see how the Romand’s would have lived and an opportunity to walk along the wall. After lunch we travel on to the Vindolanda Museum which has both an outdoor site with ongoing live excavation, and an indoor Roman Army museum full of rare treasures.
After breakfast, explore Brocolitia Roman Temple which gives an intriguing insight into Roman religious practises. The well preserved temple, dedicated to Mithras the God of Light, imitates the cave where Mithras killed a bull from whose body all goodness sprang. After a picnic lunch join the coach for the journey home.
