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

We walked about 3 miles of the wall to the west of Housesteads Fort and thoroughly enjoyed it. Had Sycamore Gap to ourselves which was rather special.

Went to see and experience the wall at Neel Rigg (near Haltwhistle) walked through a bit of farmland and followed the wall a short way. Three of our party managed to climb one of the cliffs to go further. It was a good lead in to the Roman Army Museum 3D presentation as we were able to envisage the area... More

Lovely walk and scenery, can be steep in places, wall amazing, fort ruins along the way too. Dogs can be off lead if well behaved as lots of sheep and cattle.

With only an afternoon to spend we hiked portions of the Birdoswald Roman Trail. For us the particular highlight was from the free parking lot in Willowford town to Birdoswald, which passes vast sections of wall, the ancient ramparts of the bridge crossing the river Irthing and milecastle ruins. Having visited many Roman sites in Italy (including Pompeii) we did... More
