We visited the Homestead Fort site and walked along the path of the wall. Unfortunately it was a foggy and damp day but we could still appreciate the skill and engineering of the Romans. The views today were none existent but it was certainly atmospheric. We shall return in better conditions so we can appreciate the fantastic views!

An amazing historical site with great significance. The craftsmanship of the wall and the mile castle forts for the garrison of soldiers which can be seen along every mile are simply incredible. The engineering, building and organisational skills of the Romans highlight their great intellect and expertise in building a wall which still stands almost 2000 years later. It was... More

Myself and a group of friends visited steel rigg mainly just to see the tree from Robin Hood prince of thieves, but found much more! The views was breathtaking with an enjoyable walk along part of British history. I recommend visiting this part of Hadrians wall just to see the scale of the wall which is still in tact

This thing is almost 2000 years old and still in fairly good shape, in spots. We visited a section at Heddon-on-the-Wall. There isn't much left, but you can tell that they knew how to build a wall. Walking along the walls gave me a funny feeling. I can't imagine how much work went into building it at a time when... More

Walking some of the footpaths that run along Hadrian's Wall, visiting Housesteads and admiring the spectacular views from Steel Rigg really brings home the incredible surveying, engineering, building and organisational skills that our Roman ancestors had - puts our present-day efforts into perspective...

We took a day trip from Edinburgh with Heart of Scotland Tours. This trip is quite long and we stopped at Rosslyn Abbey, the town of Melrose and the English- Scottish border. The wall itself is up a steep hill which was windy on top. There is a fort preserved from 2000 years ago, an impressive bit of building. You... More

We walked from the visitor centre at Once Brewed up to the wall, over to capstone quarry, stopping for coffee at the (non dog-friendly Milestone Inn and back along fields and minor roads to the visitor centre. 7 miles total and well worth the effort although there are some very steep sections near the wall. A short ride into Hexham... More

Hard to believe as you walk the ruins of the fort and stand atop Hadrian's Wall spanning as far as the eye can see that this mighty wall was completed in just 6 years with over 800 workers.

Hadrian's Wall is probably the most thought provoking piece of history that I have visited in the UK. While we (mum, dad, and child) only went to a small part of the wall due to time constraints, we found it to be a wonderful piece of our collective history with equally beautiful views. There are lots of places to see... More
