Roman wall running through an often wild landscape

Witness the stunning views, explore natural wilderness and become immersed in the history while visiting Hadrian’s Wall and Housesteads Fort.

Walk alongside the wall to Milecastle 37 and the famous Sycamore Gap, taking in the amazing sights along the way.

Visit the Fort for a real insight into Roman military life and discover the past behind the archaeological remains, using the stone walls as a guide around the village south of the fort and envisage the different chambers and rooms.

Note: The Fort is owned by National Trust but maintained by English Heritage.

Snowshoeing at Hadrian's Wall

Embrace the snow and venture alongside Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site wearing snowshoes.

Enjoy a day out learning key winter walking skills, such as navigation and making emergency snow shelters. Plus indulging in some fun activities including sledging, and perhaps throwing a snowball, or two?

Starry nights

Enjoy natural fireworks of meteor showers and shooting stars while staying and sleeping under them at Housesteads Farm holiday cottage, your very own tranquil slice of the Northumberland Dark Sky Park.

Winter walks

Get the thermals out and wrap up warm for a walk at Hadrian's Wall. Get a real feel for what the Romans endured during winter (it really is wild) and you can grab a hot drink and snack afterwards.
