Explore the ruins of an Ancient Roman fort and Hadrian's Wall with a guide

Where's the oldest toilet in Britain? Nope! it's not _that_ latrine from *Trainspotting*, it's at Housesteads Roman Fort! This incredible remnant of antiquity located along Hadrian's Wall recalls a time when the long arm of the Roman Empire reached into Britain. Join a tour of this ancient wonder and explore the crumbled barracks and hospital ruins in perfect Roman military tortoise-formation (or simply walk normally). Marvel at artifacts in the museum and savor some epic countryside scenery.
