Such an amazing sight! Don't get your hopes up, the wall isn't as well preserved as something like the great Wall of China, but it's still something you have to do! Do be warned that there is a bit of a walk up a hill...More

This section of Hadrian's Wall is set in most impressive scenery. The crags are quite breathtaking. What a privilege to stand where people have stood for millenia and to think of the soldiers who built this almost 200 years ago. The rugged landscape and livestock...More

Excellent views and rugged landscapes, quite a bit of wall to see. A good insight into what it was like to be stationed here. Beware though: very steep ascents and descents over small and in our case muddy, slippery rocks with a gale force wind...More

Stunning views from this section of Hadrian’s Wall. The wall itself is well preserved and the crags add more interest to the walk. I would definitely recommend this although it is steep in parts.

73 miles across all of England. 120-130 AD. Originally 3-6 meters high. Many forts along it (every "Roman mile"). Worth an hour at the wall itself. Walk along it a bit to get the feeling of its scale. If this review is helpful then please...More

We walked through this area on our Hadrian’s Wall Path walk across England. The weather was challenging when we were there (30mph wind and driving rain) and still it was beautiful in its windswept and wild state. Tip- If you walk the Wall Path or...More

After visiting the major forts (Chester, Vindolanda and Homestead), seeing this wall really completed my picture of the Hadrian's Wall. The wall is pretty much preserved thought the turret is gone. On a sunny day, you will have a wonderful view. It is worth a...More
