We had overseas visitors staying with us who were very keen to see and walk a section of Hadrian's wall in a half a day. We started off by leaving our car at the lovely Once Brewed visitors' centre before walking what has to be one of the most stunning sections of the wall by taking in Sycamore Gap (the... More

A great day out was had, by a family of 14 members. The youngest was four and the eldest 60 +. We took a picnic, the information provided at the Fort was very interesting.

Walked from Corbridge to Bowness. Day one, Corbridge to Humshaugh, then on to Steel Rigg, then Lanercost, next Carlisle and the final day onto Bowness. Some spectacular scenery particularly on the first two days where the wall is still visible along the top of the ridge. Wall is lost after Lanercost and the the walk lost some interest for me...

Absolutely fabulous walk to the famous tree at sycamore gap from steel rig car park. It can be a bit rigorous walking but well worth the effort. Also went up to the Walltown crags - again a bit of an effort but what a fantastic view - 360 degree panoramic - stunning!! Could see up to the Scottish border, over... More

April 2015...as we started our day visiting Hadrian's Wall, the trip was more a consession to my desire to see the edge of the Roman conquest on the British Isle....Hadrian's wall was to be a trip highlight for me....but Peter's ability to make history come alive and engage your immaginatio made this historic site magical..Peter insight and understanding of the...

Only walked this short section, about 2.5ish miles but it has plenty of history with the housesteads fort ruins as a starter. The walk does involve lots of ups and downs but the scenery was amazing, especially nearer sycamore gap.

This is a great side trip if you have the time or a must if you want to get a true grasp of Scotland's history and their relationship with the Romans (or lack thereof). It's totally fascinating to realize how long this wall has been standing since erected by the Romans. The small museum (which won't take long to tour)... More

A very impressive structure, especially considering the time that it was built. The views and countryside are spectacular . My only beef is the cost of car parks, £4.50, even if you only wish to stay for an hour. Even so, a good day out.
