Nicknamed the centre of Britain, because of its geographical position in the exact centre of the country, is Haltwhistle.

The picturesque town of Haltwhistle

The picturesque town of Haltwhistle


Just three miles from Hadrian’s Wall and a section of the escarpment which is the most spectacular and intact, it’s not surprising Haltwhistle is a popular place to stop, especially with walkers and cyclists. The town even hosts its own walking festival, so you can put your best foot forward on a range of walks, including the Haltwhistle Rings – 22 circular walks through historic countryside bordering the town.


Arrive the Pennine Way. This national long distance trail bisects Haltwhistle. You’ll cut through dramatic countryside with sweeping moors and woodland to arrive in the town. A few minutes’ drive away is the Hadrian’s Wall hotspot of a cluster of world famous sites including Housesteads and Vindolanda.

A nature lover’s delight, Haltwhistle is home to many rare flowers and plants including wild alpine plants not to be found anywhere else in the country. Board the train on the Tyne Vally line for destination Haltwhistle. With its quirky pubs, tea shops and restaurants, Haltwhistle’s station is one of the busiest on the line.

More information about the town can be found on the Visit Haltwhistle website.
