Firstly follow the signs when they appear even if they contradict your satnav. I inputted the postcode on the English Heritage page on the site and our satnav tried to take us up an impassable bogged down road. Contrary to information on the English Heritage...More

Lovely extended views of Hadrian's wall. Take some decent walking shoes, but this place is fabulous. Get the dual ticket for vindolande and the Roman museum.

Although the area was a sign of military prowess. These days it is very peaceful and scenic. The walks are lovely. My kids really enjoyed everything. The views are unrivalled in the locale.

If you are only going to wall one section of the wall, this is the definitely the bit to do. Stunning scenery, even on a wet day. Must have been a hard life for the soldiers up here in winter!

We walked along Hadrian's Wall for about an hour though many do it for days.It is an impressive structure that has stood the test of time.Take time to reflect on the life of the Roman soldiers stationed here.

One more item off our bucket list. Whilst Hadrian's Wall is not so grand as Ephesus, Knossos or Pompeii, it is still magnificent in it's scope and achievements. The wall must be taken in context with the other places of interest such as Birdoswald, Vindolanda,...More

We started walking Hadrian's Wall path from Wallsend in early July, with the aim of walking as much of the path as we could in a week. It is scenic walking beside the Tyne, but the path between Wallsend and Newcastle is a disgrace, with...More

Such an amazing wall. Worth the visit. It's just a shame there's only 3% of the original wall left. Most it was used for the walls around fields and houses a very long time ago.

Hi Larry, Housesteads is not the easiest of places to get to without a car! Time has a bearing on matters too! You can take public transport eg inter city train to Newcastle, then local train to Haltwhistle, then Hadrians... More

Which direction are you travelling from? one of the classic shots is at Steel Rigg, just north of B6318 at Once Brewed.
