Best of Hadrian’s Wall Path (2 days)
Hadrian's Wall offers fantastic walking and the chance to discover more about this ancient monument to the Roman's occupation of Britain. This long distance path starts at Bowness on Solway in Cumbria and ends at Walls End in Newcastle. These two days follow the stretch of Wall between Chollerford and Lanercost. The walk provides fantastic views, interesting walking and the opportunity to visit an ancient Priory, Mile castles, Roman Forts and walk next to the Wall itself in the most spectacular scenery. The amount of walking per day can be changed to suit your individual needs and there are many Roman remains to visit along the way, including Housesteads and Chesters Forts, Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum. Choose any of these to give you a greater insight into what this area was like under Roman occupation. There are also cafes at many of the attractions to enjoy a break! If you want to travel by public transport then the mainline railway stops at Hexham and Haltwhistle (on the Carlisle to Newcastle line) which are near each end of our walk. Along the Wall there is a regular bus service on the AD122 so the day can be broken up by doing a walk and then visiting a Roman site. Accommodation can be arranged along the Wall and evening meals can be taken locally. Contact us for further information, giving us the amount of walking you would like to do per day and which Roman sites you might like to visit. We can design an itinerary to suit you!
