Walltown Crags walk

Explore Walltown Crags
Walk along Hadrian’s Wall to see one of its most dramatic viewpoints. The wall is spectacularly preserved at this site, and the sheer, volcanic rock edge plunges into the landscape along the crags of the Whin Sill, creating a spectacular viewpoint.

The route that steals the show

Walltown Crags is best known for its dramatic views and is one of the most spectacular places to see Hadrian’s Wall, as it dives through the sweeping, volcanic rock edge landscape. The site sits between Birdoswald Fort and Housesteads Roman Fort, making it perfect for extending into a day out.

Park up at Walltown Visitor Centre and pick your route once you arrive, as there are a number of picturesque, circular routes in the area. Pair your trip with a picnic, as there are a number of beauty spots to lay your blanket down and admire the views.
