Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall, Hexham

4.7
#1 of 7 in Trails in Northumberland
Visit the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England, Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall. The wall was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. In 2005, it became part of the transnational "Frontiers of the Roman Empire" World Heritage Site. Learn the history at the archaeological sites and museums along the wall, take in the dramatic views, and examine forts, mile-castles, and temples. Don’t miss the solitary tree featured in the film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” or Wylam, the birthplace of pioneering railway engineer and inventor George Stephenson. Explore by foot or bike, but take care with the fragile landscape (walkers are asked to follow the path during summer months).

    Lovely extended views of Hadrian's wall. Take some decent walking shoes, but this place is fabulous. Get the dual ticket for vindolande and the Roman museum.  more »

    Although the area was a sign of military prowess. These days it is very peaceful and scenic. The walks are lovely. My kids really enjoyed everything. The views are unrivalled in the locale.  more »

    If you are only going to wall one section of the wall, this is the definitely the bit to do. Stunning scenery, even on a wet day. Must have been a hard life for the soldiers up here in winter!  more »
