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.
