Overview
More
At Wild Dog Outdoors our historical tours are suitable for all ages. If you would like a private booking or you have a coach full of friends we are be happy to help. Your tour guide will be dressed in authentic clothing and armour from the time period of the tour. We specialise in primitive living skills from prehistoric Britain, forgotten skills people once used every day to survive. We take bushcraft to a whole new level by examining the origins of survival skills. We also have an in-school education programme that is also suitable for museums and events, covering the Stone Age through to the Celts, Roman Britain and beyond... Our bushcraft days are great for kids parties, family days, team building events or hen & stag parties. If you would like more information please telephone or email. We look forward to meeting you soon. Best wishes, Sara & Kevin

Kevin organized and led a full day trip to and near Hadrian’s wall. Had to adapt it bc one of us had a broken ankle. Terrific choices. Very fun and informative. Geared just right. Highly recommend!
