Ready To Experience The Hadrian’s Wall Path? Book Today!

Hadrian’s Wall Path follows the line of the historic Roman wall that divided England and Scotland almost 2000 years ago. Discover a fascinating combination of ancient history and the flora and fauna of the wild Northumberland landscape, with overnight stops in the comfort of traditional villages.

The wall was built on the orders of Emperor Hadrian in the Second Century AD to protect the northern border of the Roman Empire and is Europe’s largest surviving Roman monument.  A UNESCO World Heritage Site, there are several informative museums and visitor centres along the route, beginning with the excellent facility at Segedunum at Wallsend. Explore the remains of the Roman Forts, Milecastles and Turrets while marvelling at the engineering skills that created this unique construction.

Hadrian’s Wall Path takes you the length of the original Roman wall between the River Tyne in the east and the Solway Firth in the west. The 23 mile (37 km) section between Chollerford and Birdoswald is a switchback with lots of short climbs and descents however the majority of the path has a natural grass surface; only the Tyneside section is tarmac. Navigation is not difficult as the route is very clearly marked with the Acorn Symbol as well as way marking arrows. Even in times of poor visibility in the higher central section navigation should not present too many problems as the path here traces alongside Hadrian’s Wall itself. Nevertheless it is always a good idea to track your progress on your guidebook or map.

In the summer season there is a daily bus service, together with a good train service from Newcastle to Carlisle that offers transport to walkers along the route.

Hadrian’s Wall Path is managed by a National Trail Partnership that ensures that the physical fabric of  the Trail and its associated archaeology is managed in a sustainable way.
