Find the Roaming Romans in Wallsend

An interactive Roman-themed trail around Wallsend town centre has doubled in size!

Using augmented reality (AR), app users can now search for an additional ten hidden Roman characters at various locations including Richardson Dees Park, outside the Customer First Centre, and Segedunum Roman Fort.

The trail, which now features 20 Romans, is self-led with fun animations and the app lets people know when they are close with on-screen prompts.

Locations are shown as an orange circle on the GPS-enabled map and each character reveals a fun fact.

People can walk around the Roman and capture photos and videos. A virtual trophy is awarded once they’ve all been discovered.

More detailed information and instructions can be found on the LetsARgo app.

The Roaming Romans trail, which initially helped to celebrate the 1900th anniversary of Hadrian’s Wall back in 2022 is organised by North Tyneside Council and supported by the North of Tyne Combined Authority.

The app, produced by north east digital agency MAADIGITAL, who specialise in apps, augmented reality, 3D design and video, uses the latest AR technology and may not be compatible with older mobile phones.
