Hadrian's Wall was really great and the facilities at all the sights were excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Great bit of roman history but not keen on paying £4 to park even though we're national trust members :-(

Hadrian's Wall was a feat of engineering from the deisgn to the location. Much of it is still in good shape. the M6318 parallels the Wall itself for much of its distance which is a tribute to good planning in the first place. We loved our five days of exploration.

There is so much to see of Hadrians Wall that it is surely impossible for anybody to give it a poor ratting. There is something for everybody, young or old. The ongoing excavations at Vindolanda are interesting and the attached museum has loads of sandals, leather tents, crests from helmets, etc., all perfectly preserved. A couple of hours for the...

THIS REMARKABLE HISTORICAL site is a wonderful trip for all ages. Looking at the wall and artifacts that date back to 79AD is just spellbinding. We chose to visit the Roman Fort at Corbridge, and Hadrian's Wall at Steel . We are just sorry it took us so long to discover these ancient sites. I think I will delve into... More

An incredible experience, but to enjoy the best bits you need to be fit and have a head for heights. Around Steel Rigg has the best views. Get your walking shoes on and give it a go!!

Driving west from Durham, England, we found our way to route B6318 and followed Hadrian's Wall to Carlisle. We stopped at Chester's roman Fort and Museum to view the ruins and visit the interesting museum full of interesting artifacts well displayed. Even in the rain it was worth walking around the area.

A superb place to visit packed with history. There are many areas of the wall that you can start and finish from with forts/castles and ancient ruins. Facilities are provided but does depend where you start from.

Took the train from Newcastle to Hexford and then found a driver to run me out to see the forts and walk the wall. Fantastic day. Most surprising was the fort layout and building design with heated floors for the Praetor! English Heritage does a beautiful job!

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
