Accommodation near Hadrians Wall
Walking Hadrian’s wall
The 84-mile path begins in the west through a landscape of wild moorland that stretches into farmland scattered with clusters of trees. The central part of the route is the part you will recognise from pictures with the wall meandering into the distance over tussocky hillside. This eventually transforms into the city streets of Newcastle.
Where is Hadrian’s Wall?
Contrary to popular belief, the wall is not located on the modern-day border between Scotland and England. The entirety of Hadrian’s wall is firmly planted on the English side of the border. It traverses England through Northumberland and Cumbria beginning in the west in Bowness-on-Solway, Cumbria and finishing in Newcastle in the east.
How long does the wall take to walk?
On average, the hike will take a week to complete depending on fitness levels and experience. Finding your way is easy, the path is marked clearly with acorn symbols and arrows, as if Hadrian’s Wall itself is not a big enough clue.
Enjoying the wall…
Why not book a few nights in a particularly scenic place to explore the Roman fortresses and rest your weary feet? Walking the trail is less than enjoyable with aches and blisters.
Walking Hadrian’s Wall Achievement Award
The National Trail’s website runs a Hadrian’s Wall Passport scheme between May and October. Stamping stations are available at seven locations along the route and owners of completed passports can claim an enamel badge and achievers’ certificate.
