A new historical tour package that ran very successfully in 2017 and is back for 2018! The package includes:
Wine reception (25th);
4 nights camping with electric on a hardstanding or grass pitch;
Two contrasting Historical Tours.
Tour 1: Hadrian’s Wall (26th): 5 mile walk along the most spectacular part of the Wall with local Historian Peter Carney, drawing your attention to things you would never spot alone. Walk: Steel Rigg - Sycamore Gap - Housesteads - Vindolanda. Peter then guides us around Vindolanda, the largest and most impressive Roman fort on the Wall.
Guided walk, Vindolanda entrance fee and transport costs all included (bad weather alternatives possible).
Tour 2: Old Newcastle (28th);: We journey to the end of Hadrian’s Wall, stopping at Segedenum Roman Fort for morning coffee (complimentary), then moving to the Quayside to start a short walking tour. Sights include the fantastic Castle Keep (from whence the city gets its name), with a great view of the Tyne, City Wall, Cathedral and the historical heart of the city - Grey Street to Grainger Town (with early Victorian indoor market). Free afternoon - continue a historical exploration, revisit the quayside (see the Sage or the Baltic) or just go shopping.
Furthermore, Newcastle/Gateshead hosts the Great Exhibition of the North from 22 June to 9 Sept 2018. At the centre of the event are 3 trails (art, design or innovation, highlighting the success of the North) - any of which you can easily join should you wish. The city will certainly be buzzing with Exhibition activity.
Note that the Segedenum Fort and Castle entry fees, transport and guidance are all included in the price.
Take a look at our Pre-arrival guide on the Bellingham Site web page, for ideas for activities on your final day (10th May). If you like walking, the Hareshaw Linn is hard to beat. PACKAGE PRICE: From ~£90 per adult, based on 2 sharing a pitch. Small reduction for Concessions.
