Raring2go! Newcastle

21 Raring2go! HADRIAN’S 1900 café with lovely outdoor seating area.. Steel Rigg is a classic walk and the famous Sycamore Gap is always a popular spot. The Roman forts of Housesteads and Chesters are also great places to explore. You'll also find Hadrian's Wall in Tyneside! The Great North Museum Newcastle has a brilliant model of the whole of the Wall and Segedunum Roman Fort at Wallsend is hosting an exhibition on how actually built it and how. Arbeia Roman Fort in South Shields will teach you about the ‘lost’ fort that controlled sea and river access to the Roman frontier. Each venue will have craft activities and lots more throughout the year. There are hundreds of events taking place along the whole length of the Wall this year (see our what's on guide for lots of them!). Did you know it's 73 miles long? There are also online activities to get involved with and the great Bunting Challenge at Vindolanda is one in which the whole family can join in. The full programme is available at www.1900.hadrianswallcountry.co.uk
