How do you review a man made landmark that is more than 2000 years old? The permanency, the solidity, the palpable history so long ago but yet still so relevant is all very powerful. I recently went to Portsmouth to see the Mary Rose and thought that this construction and the technology behind it is another 600 years or something... More

We walked Vindolanda-Sycamore Gap-Housesteads-Vindolanda in a loop. Amazing views and great to take a packed lunch and have a short break at the milecastles. Take waterproof just in case and be prepared for wind. Quite a steep climb and descent near Sycamore Gap but definitely worth it - just go slow and steady, no rush! Visit many of the "tourist...

What a feat of building all those years ago. Located in stunning Northumberland countryside. Well worth a visit whether to walk or just simply admire.

A fantastic piece of Roman Archaeology to see with your own eyes, to be at one of the extents of the Roman Empire. If you have an interest in archaeology then it is definitely worth a visit.

We drove to parts of the wall, which is very impressive. The history surrounding it is amazing, the views from the wall also impressive! We visited the Visitor centre which is free when presenting your ticket (as you can reach the wall from other parts of it by hiking). There was a "Roman Soldier" in period costume giving a show...

Fantastic attraction but if visiting as part of a Shearings Trip you may not get to see it properly. Needs to be visited independently so that wall can be ascended and visitor centre(s) visited.

Hadrian's Wall was implemented in the 2nd century AD in northern England as a defensive wall against the Celts. It's amazing where reached the Roman Empire. This wall is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage.

I self drove around England and stopped to view this wall which I was told about to go and have a look at it- and it seemed to go on forever-went for miles and miles but I did not go to any forts or walk along it as I was pushed for time and needed to have a short stop... More

Hadrian's Wall is an incredible archeological site that you can access at various points along the 70+ mile wall. Its an incredible atmospheric place to visit especially out of season. The main sites along the route such as Chesters, Housesteds, and Vindolanda are run by the National Trust or English Heritage and charge for entry (typically £20 for a family)... More
