  • Couple of miles from Steelrigg car park. Not accessible for those with a disability or trouble walking. You can walk up two routes, either over fairly steep hills or round the base of the hills. The view of the Sycamore is pretty spectacular and not to be missed. Can be busy with walkers in peak season.
  • Lovely and iconic, thanks to a certain 1990s film. There's nothing here apart from the tree and a few smaller ones and a certain Roman wall. Still, if you like history or walking then combining the two and walking along the Roman Wall path is a great way to see this tree.
  • Spectacular scenery. Even better if you go North of the wall and pick up some of the paths that run parallel to really appreciate it.
  • Great little walk along Hadrian's wall to 'that' famous tree.
  • Stunning place. Lovely landscape and one of the best preserved sectors of the Hadrian's Wall
