We walked the section of Hadrian's Wall (built AD122-AD128) from Steel Rigg past Sycamore Gap to about mile-castle 38 (although most of these mile-castles are in ruins) but there is a huge farm at the far end of Crag Lough where mile-castle would have been. Hadrian's Wall marks the most northern part of the old Roman Empire. Easy access to... More

AMAZING! Talk a walk, see history, feel the fresh air and imagine how those Romans felt, coming from a land that was hot into a land where at best is warm. Visiting In March it was cold but sunny, very windy and fresh but walking along feeling history on my finger tips was awesome. There are existing camps and forts... More

I walked two of the most spectacular sections of Hadrian's Wall this June - from Walltown to Cawfields and back, and from Once Brewed to Housesteads. This section was a linear walk, facilitated by the Hadrian's Wall Bus AD122, and passes the famous sycamore tree. The going wasn't difficult underfoot, and these sections aren't strenuous for anyone who is reasonably... More

Hadrian's Wall has become quite an attraction since the filming of the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves movie where a scene was taken there, now known as the "Robin Hood Tree". Our goal was to walk to this tree. Unfortunately, inclement weather prevented reaching the tree but the small part of the walk we did was simply memorable. Our starting... More

This amazing hike was made all the better by having Peter's knowledge and insight as to what life was like on the wall 2000 ears ago. A former history teacher, Pete has an absolute gift for making the past come alive. The scenery is spectacular, the Roman forts along the way are worth the price and having Peter there to... More

We went to Carlisle to watch the Football, Then we decided to visit the wall, and what a decision. Was a great view and the scenes were lovely. I do reccomend it highly and some of the photo opportunities are great.

Driving though Northumberland National Park on a lovely sunny day in June was amazing, as was our visit to the Housestead Fort and Museum. As National Trust members, admission was free. There is a £4 parking fee, however this is a day ticket and can be used at all other car parks. It is a bit of a trek to... More
