The wall itself is interesting but it is the landscape that is most impressive. We were lucky with the weather, because it can be rainy and windy even in summertime.

A driving tour centered on Wall, we made full use of the military road to visit as many places as possible. Some places were excellent and got full value but other parts were distinctly below par for monies paid but this did not take away the full experience of the tour and had an great time, rain an all :)

We have driven the length of England many times over the years & have never seen the wall. We now know why. Although it is a distinct problem with our own understanding of history we had no idea that only a few feet in height remains of Hadrian's Wall no matter where you look. It is certainly interesting to view... More

Touring Hadrian's Wall was always something I wanted to do and I wasn't disappointed. Whether you like walking, Roman history, engaging the family, or simply the landscape, I think there would be something, somewhere along the length of the wall to keep everyone happy.

The great thing about the 'wall' is that it is easily accessible in sections either by walking between points or by dipping in and out of the car parks. If doing the latter, your parking ticket, once purchased, will cover all the car parks along the route. On this occasion we first stopped at Walltown, then Cawfields, Steel Rigg, Sycamore... More

If you park at Once Brewed National Park centre (or nearer to the wall) there are two excellent linear walks to be had. Take the bus to Walwick and walk back. About 12 miles. Or take the bus to Greenhead and walk back (better and quieter). About 8 miles. This latter walk takes in the highest point of the wall... More

It's true. The wall was built to keep the troublesome and warlike Picts (ancestors to the Scots) from forays into Roman England. It was built by the Roman army who were accomplished engineers and builders. It is a remarkable achievement considering the technologies available to its constructors. The wall stretches from Carlisle in the west to Newcastle-on-Tyne in the east.... More

A wonderful walking excursion. We walked the entire length, taking 10 days. We stayed at fantastic B&Bs, met the most gracious people, and had a great time in any pub we went to. Northern England is so beautiful and serene. Highly recommend this.
