Explore the north-west frontier of Roman Britain

Roman presence in the northwest was by no means concentrated around the area of Hadrian’s Wall and wherever you travel in Cumbria you are not far from evidence of Roman settlement. Primarily a military region at the edge of the empire, the area was a complex of roads and defences and everywhere there is evidence of the trail they blazed during those four centuries when the greater part of Britain became a province of the mighty Roman Empire.

Tour highlights:

  • Enjoy the remote site and spectacular views over the Eskdale Valley at Hardknott Roman Fort
  • Explore the atmospheric Roman quarry site hidden amongst the trees of beautiful Gelt Woods
  • Admire the remarkable carvings and skilled workmanship of the renowned Bewcastle Cross
