Whether you do the whole walk, a few miles or a few minutes, it's an amazing experience to visit Hadrian's Wall. To walk alongside a wall built nearly 2000 years ago is such a privilege. The views are fantastic, the visitors' sites excellent and there are lots of good pubs and tearooms along the way. Do it!

I visited Hadrian's Wall with a group of friends; it was freat fun. We were on a walking holiday and spent a week exploring the sites. My friend and I both had terrible blisters from our walking boots they were so bad we had to pop them and apply Compeed plasters 'painful'. However we soldiered on with determination and saw...

We went to Cheaters's Fort and also to Housesteads. At Housesteads we walked up to the wall. It was a great experience for a short visit.

Hadrian's wall is listed as the most popular tourist attraction in England. It was on our tour of Scotland that we decided to take a look at this venue on our way back home and we are very glad we did. In the U.S., old means anything around 1700. Here at Hadrian's wall we were looking at the ruins of... More

Me and my partner done 5 miles of the wall, felt more then that though! It lived up to its expectations as it was one of the hardest parts of the wall. The scenery was beautiful and changing throughout which made it interesting.

I visited only a small part of the wall. It is my intention to come back one day and walk its full length. This type of history does not exist in Australia .... absolutely amazing and worth a visit.

Finally made it after decades of missed chances. Visited Housteads Fort, Vindolanda, the Roman Army museum, and Corbridge over 3 days. The setting alone is worth the visit and easily evokes the remote, harsh beauty at the edge of the empire. Although not on the same scale as the Pantheon, or Pompeii, the incredible array of day-to-day artifacts presented at... More

A fantastic piece of history that is a visual wonder in beautiful countryside. We chose a 7.5 mile route for a walk that took in Vindolanda and Housesteads forts. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Hadrians Wall is a National Treasure. How the Romans built this at all is difficult to comprehend. They must have been, or used a lot of, Craftsmen in building the wall. It is truly a magnificent feat, it is awe inspiring and a real must see place if you like the rugged countryside and all the history of the area.... More
