News   •   Mar 01, 2016 13:29 GMT

The AD122 bus returns from Friday 25 March, running daily until Sunday 25 September 2016. 

The Hadrian’s Wall Country Bus makes it easy to explore our Roman heritage and get out and about in some of the country’s most spectacular landscapes.

Sit back and relax as we take you to enjoy the sights and sounds of Hadrian’s Wall by bus. The AD122 takes you back into Roman times where you can visit some of the highlights of Hadrian’s Wall Country.


Chesters Roman Fort

Nestled in a beautiful riverside location, it’s not hard to see why Chesters was a good spot for the Romans to set up a base. The fort boasts one of the best preserved Roman bathhouses you can see in Britain today and the museum houses the excellent “Clayton Collection” of Roman stonework and objects.

Housesteads Roman Fort

Housesteads is the most iconic of all the Wall sites. The views and Roman remains are spectacular. Delve into the Fort’s story and see a stunning collection of artefacts. A CGI film flies through time and reconstructs Housesteads before your very eyes!

Once Brewed for Steel Rigg



Change here for the short walk to Steel Rigg or continue to walk along the iconic Wall to Sycamore Gap, one of the most famous images of Hadrian’s Wall as a Sycamore tree nestles alongside the Wall amongst some fantastic views in all directions.

Roman Vindolanda



A stunning excavated fort and civilian settlement with extensive museum displaying amazing artefacts from the site including some of the world famous Vindolanda Writing Tablets.

Roman Army Museum, Walltown

An extensive museum which gives the whole family a fantastic introduction to the Roman Army and Hadrian’s Wall. Be transported back 2000 years when you put on your 3D glasses to watch the award winning Eagles Eye film!

Walltown Crags



This is one of the finest places to see Hadrian’s Wall, where it snakes and dives through dramatic countryside along the crags of the Whin Sill. Not only is the Wall well preserved here, but it also shows how the soldiers who built it coped with the presence of large outcrops of natural rock. At one end is Walltown turret, which unusually was first built as a free standing tower.
