We were here mid-June and it was cold and windy, so be prepared. There is a lot of walking from the main visitor center to the Housesteads Fort, but it is certainly worth it. We had a wonderful guide who walked us through each area of the fort and explained how it was originally set up. Beautiful views all around... More

I cannot convey the magnificence of this place - if you have an interest in Roman History or walking or countryside (with hills!) then you have to see this and enjoy it. It is wonderful

A beautiful visit to Hadrians wall within the Housesteads Fort... Upon entering, we took a walk from the visitor building up towards the museum ( a little hilly for some)... We watched the 7 - 8 minute video on this history of Housesteads Fort which I definitely recommend, as it provides for greater appreciation when stepping outside to visit the... More

This wall was begun in 128AD by the Romans. I can not imagine building a wall by hand all the way from Newcastle-upon-Tyne on the North sea 73 miles across Brittan to the Solway Firth on the west coast. It is built with such precision. This is a World Heritage SIte

Be ready for awful weather but also for a unique and memorable experience in Roman history. Well worth the rain and wind. Just be sure to dress for the occasion.

We took our campervan via the lake district to see Hadrian's wall, stayed, Haltwhistle camping and caravan club site, a bit retro but well looked after and clean and an excellent location to visit Hadrian's wall. We both have mobility problems so we did not walk the wall but found plenty to see and do anyway, lots of sites to... More

We visited Housesteads Fort. It had a small museum with exhibits and then you could walk around the ruins of the fort. It was awesome to walk where the Romans had.

A great bit of history which has been well preserved with the ability to explore on the ruins and wall itself..

We stopped at various points along the wall using the NT car parks. (Good value at £4 for the whole day.). Found some of the signposting, and the directions in the literature, confusing at times. Never did find Mithras temple. An enjoyable day out though.

We made a beautiful journey from West to East ​​. With the wind at our backs . Especially the first day was great because the wind was almost stormy.
