Real Roman Tours

Historical Tour

    Salve! Welcome to Real Roman Tours. We provide guided historical tours by a ‘Real Roman’, Quintus Valerius Maximus, to various sites along the Antonine & Hadrian's Wall.

    The Antonine Wall was built by Emperor Antoninus Pius and formed the north-west frontier of The Roman Empire from around AD 142 until the 160s. The Wall, which was made of turf, stretched over 37 miles across lowland Scotland from the River Forth in the east to the River Clyde in the west.

    Due to popular demand we have decided to expand our range of tours down to Hadrian’s Wall. Hadrian’s Wall was a defensive fortification in Roman Britain, begun in AD 122 during the rule of Emperor Hadrian. Hadrian’s Wall extended west for 73 miles from Segedunum at Wallsend on the River Tyne, via Carlisle to the shore of the Solway Firth.

    We currently offer scheduled tours during April to September and a tailor-made tour option which is available all year round. We like to keep the groups small and personal and limit numbers to a maximum of six people for the full day tour and 20 for the walking tour. All tours will be conducted in English with some Latin terminology thrown in.
