Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland

(4.6/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Visit the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England, 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).

  • Started our walk along the wall from steel rigg car park..we did around a 4 miler walk along the wall, the views are stunning and we'll worth the effort that's needed to climb up and down the crag.  more »
