Our guided tours are given by our amazing volunteer guides, they all run from the Westgate (main visitors entrance) in the courtyard. The 45-minute tours will take you through some of historical background of the Vindolanda forts, the highlights of the visible site remains with detail on important buildings such as the bath house, tavern and headquarters buildings, and information about some of the great finds you will be able to see in the museum, including one of Britain’s Top Treasures, the Vindolanda Writing Tablets.
