We visited the wall because of Scottish family heritage and really enjoyed it. We walked a couple of miles from steel rigg parking area past sycamore gap and back, beautiful views.Then we visited the museums at Vindolanda and Housesteads Roman Fort, both had very good displays to see

This is a old broken down stone wall.. that is 2000 years old! So its not going to be very entertaining if you dont view it from a perspective of its rather impressive historical value, if you know nothing about it do a little reading before going. Walltown Crags is the best place to see the wall. Tiny little road,... More

Well it's a wall about 4 foot high, how did that keep anyone out? We walked a good section which was up and down and hard work...

The Hadrian's Wall is an amazing part of history. The ability for the people in the 100's AD to accomplish so much including running water is almost unbelievable. The visitor reception is very nice and has a Tea Room.

How good was it...? Well the kids walked and played for hours. The geology, the views and the wall give the place a powerful ambience that allowed us to play Romans V Celts and Picts for hours, lost in our imaginations.

Simply follow the B6318 from near Hexham and stop off at all the car parks along the way as shown on brown tourist signs, we paid £4 all day and the ticket was transferable to all 5 car parks listed on the ticket. If you wish then leave the car and walk the wall as far as you wish and... More

Vindalanda was the pick of the bunch for us, followed by the roman museum. You don't necessarily have to be roman buffs to appreciate this place...but it does help a little

Hard to find but it sits on the B6318 between the road to Simonburn (and Shapely Farm) and the road to Blackcarts Farm. GPS co-ordinates: 55°02'09.3"N 2°10'55.8"W

In its hayday, this corner of the Roman Empire must have felt like the backside of the known world. Fast forward 1600 yrs and you will find out that it is. The wall and town might be in ruins, but the Roman style of building is still evident. Looking around, the boredom factor must have been at 99. Ten minutes... More

If you have a sense of history and British scenery, then spend some time around the central section of the Wall. Lots of wonderful walking, clear paths, fantastic views on both sides and excellently interesting museums. This is such an important part of our heritage!
