Events at Hadrian's Wall 

See the smile on this chap's face? He's in a snow shelter that he built at Hadrian's Wall. If you'd like to give this a go, you can (depending on the snow). It's a snowshoeing day where you walk along Hadrian's Wall, stopping for a spot of lunch, sledging and building snow shelters!

Discover history 

From a Roman leader to a local antiquarian - Hadrian's Wall has certainly seen some things during its time and can now include being the star of a few Hollywood movies, such as Macbeth, and TV series Vera. There's many reasons why this is a World Heritage Site and why the National Trust works hard to conserve it.
