I can understand the historic importance and all, but the stretch I have visited had nothing impressive about it. I think it's overstated.

Great view point of the wall, excellent place to hike from/to or just take pictures. Housesteads Roman Fort also good, fort ruins mostly foundations. Highly recommend a full day, my half morning reconnaissance not nearly enough other than to plan for a longer stay and hike.

Viewing what's left of Hadrian's Wall varies along its considerable 73 mile course. My recommendation is - head for the area around Housesteads Fort to see the remains of a typical Roman Fort that housed nearly 1000 soldiers. Then park at Steel Rigg car park and walk the 20- 30 minute walk to Sycamore Gap. You won't be disappointed.

We walked a small section of the wall near Once Brewed, parking at Steel Rigg Carpark. For its age and exposure to the elements, I was quite surprised how much actually remains. Some decent climbs to follow the wall as it hugs the terrain, but worth every huff and puff.

I had visited the Wall before, but this time I actually walked a good section of it, mainly due to the fantastic weather and the great views. I had intended to park in one of the National Park CP's but having seen the cost, ended up parking down a side road on the verge. The way that the Wall used... More

We walked for 4 days from Brampton to Heddon; 50 miles in total. A wonderful experience, if a bit tough at times. The open spaces & the views made it a great experience. Lots of ladder stiles, which were tricky for the dog to negotiate but not impossible.

Start with the crowded parking and charge, then enter and find you have quite a walk ahead of you down a path, then up a reasonable incline. I never want to complain about weather on any review, no one can help this, but given the distance from the carpark & entry, if the rain comes in, you are going to... More

The wall is an amazing piece of history and construction. However the parking charges at the car parks are a tad excessive. We visited one of the forts and found that not only did you have a four pound car park charge but then had to pay to go into the ruins. We were also disappointed that the cafe advertised... More

We walked the part of the wall which has Sycamore gap in it made famous in the film Robin Hood with Kevin Costner. A fantastic walk from the car park at once brewed with some big unbroken sections of the wall. We also visited Walltown Quarry which has a part of the wall. In fact there are 5 car parks... More
