Follow 2,000 years of history

It’s not often you have an opportunity to walk coast to coast across northern England accompanied by the world’s largest Roman artefact. UNESCO world heritage listed Hadrian’s Wall was built 2,000 ago by the Emperor Hadrian and 15,000 Roman soldiers. The wall stretches for 135km from vibrant post-industrial Newcastle upon Tyne, across a pastiche of green rolling hills and open moorland to the remote beauty and bird-lovers haven of the Solway Firth.

Hadrian’s Wall is both a history buff and hikers dream – even better if you’re both! Enjoy the enormous variety of landscapes including sheep-dotted fields, forests, pastures and quaint English villages. For every Roman mile walked (approximately 2km) you’ll find the excavated remains of milecastle forts and turrets; enroute there are numerous other forts, barracks and settlements as well as the wall itself.

Step back to Roman Britain times as you follow the wall through the dramatic windswept ridges and crags of Northumberland National Park. Take in the best-preserved sections of the wall then discover historic Carlisle with its 900-year old medieval castle before your final steps lead you to the Solway Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the end of your Hadrian’s Wall journey back through time.
