All reviews steel rigg sycamore gap hadrian's wall robin hood great walk car park world heritage site roman army museum housesteads fort well worth the effort walking boots newcastle miles section route stretch england
When friends visited from Belgium ..for a trip of a lifetime to see the wall ... it was known in advance that the famous museums would be closed for winter.
We even knew that the bus wouldn’t be running so we planned some clever car...More
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
When we arrived at the Roman Army Museum Car Park, I saw the sign for Hadrian’s Wall and enquired in the Museum of the directions even though I hadn’t appreciated I was so close. So I followed the directions via the quarry and there you...More
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
The ‘Conservation Corridor’ of Hadrian’s Wall can be enjoyed from a number of access points for a day visit or as part of a longer 2, 3 or 4 day expedition.
The route in the section is easy to follow but good strong footwear and...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
Hi Winifred, it depends on what part/s of the wall you want to visit. The middle section is the one we always visit. If you are looking at the areas between Banks Turret and Chesters Roman Fort you really don’t need a guide... More
Hi Winifred, it depends on what part/s of the wall you want to visit. The middle section is the one we always visit. If you are looking at the areas between Banks Turret and Chesters Roman Fort you really don’t need a guide. There is a 122 bus that runs between the sites including Vindolanda and Housesteads. Driving is also pretty easy in the area and I’d recommend a car if you are game to drive. Re accommodation I recommend you pick a location to base yourself in then visit the top sites. You can walk the whole wall but I’ve never used a company that offers bag pick up.
