The Pilgrimage of Hadrian's Wall 2019

The next Pilgrimage will run from 20 to 28 July 2019, the first 4 days being based in Newcastle and the remainder in Carlisle. The Wall will be visited from South Shields on the North Sea to Maryport on the Solway. Pilgrims will travel in coaches between sites but there will be plenty of walking. The main themes of the tours will be the evidence for the building of the Wall and its later history in the third and fourth centuries. Eight experts in Hadrian's Wall will undertake the guiding.

Where: 
Newcastle to Carlisle
When: 
20 to 28 July 2019
