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.
They say that good things come in threes. Well so do we... Walking. Fresh air. Beautiful views.
You can come here and enjoy all of them. In fact, as part of the Great British Walk there's a Guided Walk along Hadrian's Wall, love history and the outdoors? This could be for you.
Hadrian's Wall is within Europe's largest Dark Sky Park! Funnily enough, back in the day the Romans would have used the stars as a clock to start the harvest in December then have a huge celebration called 'Saturnalia'. Want to join us for some star gazing?
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is pretty fab, and we love that hundreds and thousands of visitors enjoy it every year. Unfortunately, too much walking on the Wall itself can cause damage. So Ranger Jonny Tomlinson set out to put the wall back together again!
