Edinburgh: Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian's Wall Tour in Spanish

3. Edinburgh: Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian's Wall Tour in Spanish

The tour will depart at 08:45 from Edinburgh and return to the original departure point at approximately 20:00. You will leave Edinburgh to stop in the village of Roslin, where you will be able to see the ruins of its castle and the famous Rosslyn Chapel, a Gothic structure built during the 15th century that maintains its mysterious attraction. It is well-known all over the world for the connections established by Dan Brown with Masonic and Templar theories.                                                                                                                     Later on, you will cross the green fields of the Lowlands, and reach Jedburgh, a small town in the border between England and Scotland. After crossing the border, you will go through the Northumberland National Park, one of the most important national parks in England, where you will visit the main attraction of your journey: Hadrian's Wall. This structure, a UNESCO World Heritage, is one of the most impressive Roman works of engineering. It splits the island in two parts, and it was the empire's northern frontier. You will also visit the military camp of Vindolanda. After this main visit, see the charming village of Gretna Green, one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations, where you will be able to rest and enjoy its wonderful environment before your way back to Edinburgh.

We picked up our 16-day pass in Battle Abbey (near Hastings) and were received there in a very friendly and courteous manner with all of our questions. The exchange of the GYG voucher went smoothly. - Unfortunately, there was information on the GYG explanation pages that the family pass included 4 children under the age of 19. Unfortunately, as we learned in Battle Abbey, this is not the case; it only applies to children under the age of 18. So we had to buy an extra “adult” pass for our 18 year old son. But English Heritage cannot help it; please change the information on the Get Your Guide pages. Otherwise, the whole booking procedure was very pleasant, quick and flawless. And I think it's great that there are short-term passes for overseas tourists that save you having to take out an annual membership.

Alex was fantastic! He had so much knowledge of the history of Scotland & England and it was wonderful to be able to ask questions. I am a huge The Last Kingdom fan so it was amazing to share information about true history versus historical fiction. Ales is a wonderful guide! Book him and you won't be disappointed!

we visited in London Apsley House and Wellington Arch with the English Heritage pass the visit was free and with audio guide in French for Apsley House. Informative visit and very beautiful building.

The pass is recommended. Paying locally is much more expensive.
