I guess we would have enjoyed it better if the weather had have been kinder but it was very cold at vIndolanda and house steads when we visited but my husband really enjoyed every minute. I enjoyed the coffee shop more.

If you only have one day to explore this World Heritage Site here are a few suggestions of what to see and how to enjoy it. We initially planned to explore Housesteads Roman Fort but the crowds and tour buses were a turn off. It was not the way we wanted to experience such a site. After paying for a... More

Fabulous scenery, especially between Gilsland and Chesters. Short detour to Vindolanda from Once Brewed is well worth the visit - extensive excavations and lots of artefacts on display in the museum there. B&Bs were all excellent. Youth Hostel at Once Brewed dated but it was clean and about to be replaced with a new build. We used Hadrian's Haul to... More

It might be missing in parts,covered in turf or only a few stones high in places but this monument to Roman Power is absolutely breathtaking. Scenery is stunning in summer particularly the high section with drops on the nrthern side between Housesteads & Walltown Crags.

On my first visit to Hadrian's wall i used the AD122 yellow bus - absolutely brilliant! good stopping places, all the drivers very helpful and patient (even if they obviously know the route SO well, they speed along like crazy!). Can't think why more people weren't using the bus - fellow passengers all going same places and therefore made for... More

Visited with some American friends. It's a great place and the information is well presented. The short film clip worth seeing as it brings the fort to life a little more. I did think it was expensive though, especially as there isn't a full days worth to be had really. Fair trek up to the fort so not for the... More

We wanted to 'walk the wall' rather than spend time in visitors' centres. We took advice and walked a section of the wall from west to east, and returned along a footpath away from the wall to allow us to 'see' the wall in all its glory. Great!
