Hadrian's Wall Pilgrimage 2019

Hadrian's Wall Pilgrimage 2019

The Fourteenth Pilgrimage of Hadrian's Wall will be held from 20 to 28 July 2019. We will be based at the Royal Station Hotel in Newcastle for the first four nights and the County Hotel in Carlisle for the second four. Travel will be by four coaches, but there will be opportunities for walking. The programme has been designed to illustrate recent work on Hadrian’s Wall, as well as visits to the traditional sites and to museums. There will be two main themes to the Pilgrimage: sites which illustrate the building of the Wall, and those which illuminate its history in the third and fourth centuries.  On several days there will be receptions. All Pilgrims will be issued with a copy of a special handbook detailing work on the Wall over the last ten years edited by Rob Collins and Matthew Symonds. There will be special book stalls on two evenings. On the Wednesday, the Pilgrimage will move from Newcastle to Carlisle and that day will be spent at Vindolanda, reflecting the amount to inspect at that site; the day will close with a hog roast. The registration fee includes site entries, lunches and dinners, and the handbook.

Cost is £410 plus accommodation as required. Booking is now open to the general public. Follow this link for the booking form.
