Day 2

Hadrian's Wall, Vindolanda & Museum
After breakfast we meet our step-on-guide for a full day guided tour of Hadrian's Wall and Hexham. We travel through the fabulous scenery of the beautiful Northumbria countryside along the Hadrian's Wall route, visiting the award winning Vindolanda, one of Europe's most important Roman archaeological sites, and its Roman Army Museum. We can enjoy lunch here before visiting the charming market town of Hexham, characterised by its stone architecture, cobbled streets and historic buildings before continuing on our tour along Military Road where we see the magnificent wall at close quarters.

Day 3

Beamish Open Air Museum
Today, we visit the Living Museum of the North, the Beamish Museum. This famous open air museum, set within 300 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside, tells the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940's. We experience town life as it would have been in the 1940s during World War 2, visit a 1940's farm, pop into the Colliery and Pit Village in the early 1900s and take unlimited free rides on the Beamish tram.

Day 4

We spend today at the excellent Cragside House & Gardens, former home of the famous inventor, Lord Armstrong. In 1878, Cragside was the first house in the world to be lit by hydro-electricity and it is crammed full of ingenious gadgets - most of them still working - as well as an eclectic collection of British art, furniture, ceramics and natural history. Outside the house, one of the largest rock gardens in Europe leads down to the Iron Bridge, which in turn leads to the lovely formal gardens.
Please note, the terrain at Cragside House is uneven with steep footpaths, many of which are unsuitable for wheelchair users.
