HADRIAN’S WALL NATIONAL TRAIL

Discover Roman secrets along this World Heritage Site

Roam the northernmost border of the Roman Empire and imagine what it must have been like for the warm-blooded soldiers, so far from home in this remote and compelling landscape.

This continuous walk, with two bases, follows the Hadrian’s Wall National Trail. With its relatively easy terrain and lack of steep ascents, it should appeal to just about every reasonably fit walker. 

Starting just west of Heddon on the Wall, and finishing at Bowness on the Solway Firth, we’ll cover about 66 miles of the trail in six days, following in the footsteps of the Roman soldiers who once patrolled this northernmost outpost of the Roman Empire. 

Emperor Hadrian built the wall in the 2nd century to mark the northern border of the Roman Empire. The middle sections of the wall, in particular, pass through some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain, with little changed since the Romans left. 

We visit many well-preserved sites on our way, such as Chesters Roman Fort, Birdoswald and Carlisle Castle. Most days include an hour’s sightseeing. If you’re members of National Trust or English Heritage don’t forget your membership cards.
 



WALKING GRADES


Full day walks with moderate amounts of ascent and descent. The paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Walks will last up to 6 hours and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent. Some walks will be less demanding but equally rewarding.
