  • Park at steel rigg car park £2 per hour about 40 leisurely walk either follow the wall path up and down a few steep climbs/descents certainly not for anyone who is injured or disabled. Easier route is...  more »
  • This is a must see bucket list. The classic view is actually from a field south of the wall or from a car passing. Beware of stopping on the road like a tourist as its obscured in a dip and people do ...  more »
  • If you like a gently challenging walk (especially on a bright day) this is lovely. Pretty easy walking apart from the steep-ish stones to get your up and down the gaps. You get some fabulous views and...  more »

  • There’s not really much to review and say about this place. It’s essentially just a good place to take a nice stylish photo. You can get a great photo from many angles, just check out all of the photos on here. They filmed a scene from Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves here though so you may recognise it from there.
  • We parked at "The Sill" which is about a 15-20 minute walk from Sycamore Gap. Admittedly I was desperate to visit this iconic location because of the Robin Hood film featuring Kevin Costner. I loved this film as a kid and they filmed a scene here. We went on Christmas Eve morning and it was relatively quiet, so we weren't sharing my fangirl photos with any other Robin Hood loving tourists.
  • A camping trip to Sycamore Gap with my kids 13/Aug/2017. Some lovely views and great fun had enjoying getting away from the techy world that we live in.
  • Speaks for itself really. Specially if you have seen Robin Hood with Kevin Costner. You can take a very steep and active track. Or you can walk around. Either way, anything to do with Hadrian's wall is just awesome
  • Beautiful views, lovely dry weather, hardly any wind even though you're up a few hundred feet. Definitely take waterproof boots with you.
