Walk the wall and follow the footsteps of Romans in Hadrian’s Wall country.

The Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail is a 84-mile long-distance footpath following the Wall as it snakes along crags and ridges. It takes six days for experienced walkers to walk from Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria to Wallsend on Tyneside and enjoy the breathtaking scenery as it passes through rugged moorland, rolling fields and the cityscape of Carlisle and Newcastle upon Tyne.

If 84 miles is too long for you, no worries, there are many shorter walks suitable for all abilities to enjoy the picture-perfect countryside. Make sure to pass by the sycamore tree Kevin Costner climbed in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves!
