Here you can enjoy lunch (own expense) before continuing your journey to Hadrian’s Wall. Stop at Housesteads Fort in Northumberland National Park, and take a short hike along the main wall.

We had no trouble with the different currencies because we only stopped at the gift shop for Hadrian’s Wall in England and they accepted what we had for money. Everything else on the tour was technically in Scotland.

It’s confortable for small groups and they only allow enough people to enjoy the comforts of the van and tour. It lasts about 9 hours and is very entertaining.
