Volunteer Tour Guides

We need you to tell Arbeia's story.

Tour Guides required

Do you have a passion for the history of the North East or England's Roman heritage? Could you share it with others? 

We're seeking volunteers to learn to be tour guides and support our summer programme.

We need people to tell the story of Arbeia. It's had several guises; from the Roman Emperor's HQ for the Scottish invasion to a busy cosmopolitan port. It's hosted dramatic tales of murder, fire, and holds the key to ancient love stories. It was a huge supply base for the Roman army, home to 600 Roman troops and is said to be the birth place of the Northumbrian King Oswin. It's also a UNESCO World Heritage site with the finest full-scale Roman reconstructions in the country showcasing some of the most significant finds from that time.

Interested?  You'll receive an introduction to Arbeia from one of the UK's leading Hadrian's Wall experts Nick Hodgson, and guidance on giving tours from managing groups to better communication, from experienced tour guides.
