Explore the incredible Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders on this day tour from Edinburgh.

The Romans came, they saw, but they couldn’t quite conquer.

After centuries of raiding, plundering, and fighting the ancient north of Britannia, they decided to build a wall.

But this isn’t just any wall, it’s an astounding achievement. It showcases the might of the ancient Roman Empire and illustrates how the Romans interacted with tribal Britain.

This tour takes you to the most interesting parts of this grand partition and lets you learn about Rome’s influence on Britain, while also giving you a chance to explore the gentle rolling hills of the borders and visit an ancient abbey.

It’s perfect for anyone fascinated by the collision of cultures and quintessential British landscapes.

Itinerary

Edinburgh

You travel on old Roman Dere Street, which linked the supply ports of the south of England up to modern day Scotland.

Jesburgh

Your first stop on this tour is the border town of Jedburgh, a historic burgh dominated by a magnificent 12th century Augustinian Abbey.

On arrival in Jedburgh, you may have time to take a short walk through the narrow streets and visit this impressive ruin.

Carter Bar

Continuing south we make a stop at the scenic Carter Bar on the edge of the Cheviot Hills. This crossing point between Scotland and England runs close to the ancient Roman road and has formed the border between the two countries for the past 700 years.

Hadrian's Wall

The tour continues through the magnificent forests of Northumberland National Park before turning west towards Hadrian’s Wall.

We follow the road that takes us along the south side of the wall, stopping at Steel Rigg. You have time to walk beside the wall and experience the isolation that Roman foot soldiers would have experienced as they guarded their empire from the ‘barbarians’ to the north.

You continue your journey along the wall where your guide will recommend the best of the sites to visit.

Edinburgh

You have time to explore sections of the wall or the remains of the Roman settlements before you turn north and travel back to Edinburgh through the Galloway hills.
