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

Stretching almost entirely across northern England, a huge amount of the Roman-constructed Hadrian's Wall remains. There are a number of ports possible to visit, but we found Birdoswald excellent. Erected around 125AD, there are nice views from the stone ramparts plus an exhibition showing the history of the fort. The town of Haltwhistle makes a good base from which to... More

Being able to drive and stop at different portion of the wall the seperate one side to the other was a trip in time. My family and I walked for a few miles on the wall and took many photos.

I live about a mile south of Hadrians Wall near the site of Rudchester roman fort and have been to every part of the wall over the last 30 years or so, including running the length of most of it non stop about ten years ago. Starting at the Solway (western) end - there is not much to see for... More

As an Ancient History and Archaeology student i loved my visit to Hadrian's wall, in a rare turn of weather it was very warm and dry that summer so we were not held back in what we could see, there are countless forts along the wall of which are worth visiting. the popular Vindolanda and Housesteads are two places worth...

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
