Important Roman forts, museums and medieval Durham await you

The Romans occupied this country for some 400 years and left behind them a wealth of archaeological evidence. On this holiday explore the legacy of these sophisticated, militaristic people as you visit Roman forts, museums, famous Vindolanda and more. Museum visits will introduce you to artefacts created and used by the Romans, helping to shed light on their way of life. You'll also step forward in time as you explore medieval Durham with its winding street and outstanding cathedral. Your expert host will add an extra dimension to your holiday with two post-dinner talks, and they'll also accompany your visits. After so much history, you'll be glad to relax at your modern, 4-star hotel and enjoy dinner in the restaurant overlooking the river.
