A guide to Hadrian's Wall

Hadrian's Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stretches across Northern England covering a large amount of Northumberland, from the banks of the River Tyne near the North Sea to the Solway Firth on the Irish Sea. Built by the Romans in AD 122, it served as a defensive fortification marking the northernmost boundary of the Roman Empire.

Getting Here:

  • By Car: Several access points from the A69 leading up to the Military Road where you will find a wealth of attractions, places to eat and varied accommodation which offer parking facilities.
  • By Public Transport: Trains and buses connect major cities like Newcastle and Carlisle to nearby towns from where you can access the wall. The AD122 Hadrian's Wall Country Bus makes it easy to explore Roman Forts and scenic sections of the wall.
