We're so excited to be joined by Lundgren Tours for this exclusive virtual and interactive tour! This is a favourite trip of ours but as we can't visit Hadrian's Wall at the moment - Lundgren Tours will bring this to you! This will be the most entertaining and fun tour you've been on!
The initial inspiration for George RR Martin’s masterpiece began when he was in England visiting a friend in 1981. When they approached the border of England and Scotland, they visited Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland. George stood up high on top of the wall and imagined what it would be like to be a Roman Legionary, looking out into the distant hills and unknown lands north of the wall. Almost 2000 years ago, this wall was built to mark the end of civilisation, to mark the end of the world as the Romans knew it and above all to keep out any unknown threats, monsters and dark forces that would threaten their territory. Of course we now know those threats to be the Celtic Scots. Back then however, Roman Centurions would have no idea what was beyond the wall and had to face the fear of the unknown. It was this that lead to the creation of the 300 mile long by 700 feet tall ‘Wall’ in Game of Thrones.
Through this virtual tour you will experience what it was like to be both a Roman Guardian and a Celtic Invader as we explore the history of the best-preserved frontier of the Roman Empire as well as locations such as Sycamore Gap, among breathtaking scenery.
