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

Have to drive to the parking area, then hike down into a shallow valley, past the sheep (watch where you step) and hike up a hill to the wall. The wall is above an escarpment in a strong position with great views for miles around....More

A lovely walk along a well preserved section of Hadrians Wall. It is a bit up and down with some steep inclines and some sections with steps up. Gives great views across Northumberland

One of the best stretches of the Wall. There's also a walk around the quarry and a peace labyrinth planted of willow. Accessible by bus from Hexham or Haltwhistle. It's next to the Roman Army Museum which is well worth a visit.

The walk from the car park is a bit steep in places, but sitting by the quarry pond we watched a sparrowhawk flying in the gusty wind. Lovely.

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
