Great Britain: Northumberland

Walking the Best of Hadrian's Wall

  • Walk along Hadrian's Wall - the largest historical monument in Britain
  • Visit the ancient Roman forts of Birdoswald, Vindolanda, Housesteads and Chesters
  • Walk from West to East, keeping the prevailing winds behind you (and better views)
  • Beautiful scenery with views across to the Lake District and the Northumberland Coast
  • Discover other historical buildings including Lanercost Priory and St Oswald's Church
  • Optional city break add-on in Newcastle available.

Hadrian's Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage site, is Britain's largest archeological feature and was the northernmost limit of the Roman Empire. An immense feat of labour, the building of the wall started in AD122 during the reign of emperor Hadrian and took 6 years to complete. Three Roman legions completed the task of building a 73 mile long wall with 80 milecastle fortlets with two observation turrets between each one and then larger garrison forts every five miles or so along the wall.

This 5-night walk along Hadrian's Wall, from West to East, starts at Lanercost Priory and ends in Corbridge, taking in some of the best-preserved Roman sites in the UK. We've chosen this route direction so the prevailing winds (and any inclement weather!) are always at your back and the scenery in this is direction is considerably better than the other way round. You'll have the possibility of visiting some amazingly well-preserved sites including the following: the Roman forts of Birdoswald, Vindolanda, Housesteads and Chesters and Lanercost Priory. The route also passes the world-famous Sycamore Gap as well as some fabulous rolling Northumberland countryside and craggy hillsides, such as those of Walltown, Winshield and Sewingshields Crags. You finish your route in the affluent and once-bustling Roman town of Corbridge.

You'll stay in welcoming inns, guesthouses and B&B's with hearty Northumberland breakfasts to set you up for a day of exploring.
