Our engaging Roman Britain Tour brings to life the legacy of the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. The ancient cities of Deva, Viriconium, Aquae Sulis and Camulodunum (modern-day Chester, Wroxeter, Bath and Colchester) are some of the best places in the UK to get a feel for life in Roman Britain.
Along with brilliant museums such as the Grosvenor Museum and the Roman Baths, the surrounding countryside is dotted with archaeological sites, including the luxurious Fishbourne Roman Palace.
Our suggested itinerary is designed to bring the study of History, Latin & Classical Civilisations to life through interactive workshops, and your students are sure to enjoy walking in the footsteps of the Romans!
