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.

May half term

There's plenty of great half term events going on at Hadrian's Wall Country.

You may fancy a cycle ride along Haltwhistle to Lambley Viaduct taking in the views and learning some history from a guide or perhaps an adventure in Allen Banks woodland is more up your street where you can learn new bushcraft skills.

Photography day

On Sunday 28 June, perhaps you'd like to join professional photographer Roger Clegg to spend the day learning about how to select the best subjects and add impact to your landscape photographs.

Get away from it all

Take a break and enjoy a getaway. There's three holiday cottages along Hadrian's Wall, each with its own individuality and stories to tell, ideal for relaxing, walking and delving into history - which one will you choose?
