Second visit to Hadrian's wall and will be back again I have no doubt. Scenery is amazing and the history of the area is a must for anyone.

My wife and I drove out here on a whim after visiting Carlisle. It was a fair drive and parking was £3, but it was worth it. The views were stunning, and the wall is in good condition and is very accessible. We walked up and down by the wall, got a few photos and went on our way. The... More

We booked through Mickledore Travel. They set up a chain of special bed and breakfasts the length of the wall and arranged for our bags to be taken on to the next stop. The whole was sympathetically arranged and seamless. The hosts were all kindly. Amongst the stopovers was Lindon House in Humshaugh (One room only let and with what... More

Been here many times and it always takes me back in time. 73 miles of wall. Me and a few friends have camped along here. FREEZING. There are plenty of historical sites along the way. It's a little broken but I think it is getting help which should always be kept because of all the history involved. It is a... More

What a fantastic place. It's not often you get to see, touch and feel history like this. To stand upon the wall and look across what once was the border, you get the sense of how it must have felt to be a Roman. Wish I'd spent longer, but will certainly return when possible. A moment which I'll always remember.

We had a family trip from Newcastle to the Hadrian's Wall. It is less than an hour car drive to reach the Housesteads Roman Fort. The staff is very nice. The walk to the Fort offers beautiful views of the country side. The Fort is well preserved and the kids can enjoy the different buildings - here they find the... More

My daughter and I drove to Larnacost Priory and then onto Hadrian's wall. The scenery was spectacular and the wall size was more substantial than I had thought. Whilst many centres are closed in December, we walked around the Roman Fortress ruins and saw turrets and stretches of wall as we travelled East. We finished at the centre of Britain,... More

My friends and I walked the Hadrian's wall from Newcastle to Bowness in 4 days. The first part to get away from Newcastle is a bit boring. Nothing much happening. it starts to get a bit more interesting when you start walking through the sheep meadows and you can walk the small ladders. At the end of day 1 we... More

We visited Hadrian's Wall in early November , 2013. My sister was limited from a foot injury but fortunately we had a taxi driver/ guide from Newcastle city tours, Peter Irvine, who arranged our 2 day trip. We did half a day at Durham Cathedral ( wonderful) and a full day with Peter seeing Hadrian's Wall. The landscape was breathtaking... More
