Walking Hadrian’s Wall
Walking Hadrian’s Wall Path is more than a linear walking holiday.
It is impossible not to become fascinated by the history and feeling the presence of everyday Roman life all along Hadrian’s Wall.
Constructed with a small fort every mile Hadrian’s Wall was manned by 10,000 soldiers in it’s heyday.
Completed in AD122, it took the soldiers of Hadrian’s 2nd and 6th Roman legions just over a decade to build the 73-mile, coast to coast barrier across England protecting the northern outer limits of the Roman empire.
Their astonishing achievement remains the largest ancient monument in northern Europe, and a Roman World Heritage Site.
As you walk , rather than march, in the footsteps of the 2nd century Roman legionnaires alongside Hadrian’s Wall, carving its way through the rugged beauty of the Northumbrian countryside, you’ll be enjoying views of a landscape largely unchanged since the days when Roman legions patrolled here.
