Almost 2000 years on and amazingly Hadrian's Wall is still here! English Heritage is celebrating the 72-mile World Heritage Site that dips and winds through two counties in a week long programme of events at three jaw-dropping attractions. During May half-term, join us for a week-long celebration of all things Roman. Chesters will play host to Roman Cavalry. You can meet fast-paced cavalry warriors with their unique and ancient weapons, witness awe-inspiring drills and little Roman soldiers can even mount their own fast-paced Roman-hobby horses! Which hobby horse will defeat its opponents and rule Hadrian's Wall once again? Check out the events at Housesteads & Birdoswald Roman Fort too.
