Ratings and Reviews
Just got back from a trip to the north east where we visited Hadrian’s Wall and I couldn’t recommend this app enough! Well worth the £1.99 and you wont be disappointed. It includes all of the main Roman Museums/Sites along the wall along with countless hotels, restaurants and attractions. The images used in the app are breath taking. The GPS was also very accurate and easy to follow which helped us out a great deal. Cant wait to visit again.
