Barns in Hadrian’s Wall with wildlife watching guide


The crumbling ruins of Hadrian's Wall are steeped in history. Stretching for 73 miles across northern England, from coast to coast, this ancient fortification once marked the northern frontier of the Roman Empire. Discover the legacy of the Wall as you explore long-abandoned forts, archaeological museums, and Roman towns, or seek out secluded spots far from the crowds. For the ultimate adventure, hike part of the 84-mile Hadrian's Wall Path national trail or cycle part of the 170-mile Hadrian's Cycleway. Campsites pepper the route, providing easy access to the hiking trail, along with highlights such as Birdoswald Roman Fort and Corbridge Roman Town.

When to go

Summer is peak season, and popular attractions such as Chesters Roman Fort and Housesteads Roman Fort can get busy. Book tickets in advance and make the most of free events and children's entertainment hosted throughout July and August. Hiking is best from May through October, but Northern England's weather is notoriously changeable, so come prepared. Parts of Hadrian's Wall are remote and rural, so access may be limited by weather conditions in winter.

Know before you go

  • There are multiple sites to view Hadrian's Wall throughout Northumberland, Cumbria, and Tyne and Wear, and they are all easily reached by car. A shuttle bus also runs between towns and attractions along the Hadrian's Wall Path between April and September.
  • Hadrian's Wall and most of its attractions are outdoors, so dress according to the weather and be prepared for sites to get muddy during wet periods. A raincoat or umbrella is recommended, even in summer. 
  • Wild camping is not permitted anywhere along the Hadrian's Wall Path, but there are campsites and caravan parks close to each section of the trail. 
  • Many sites are accessible for wheelchairs, but access to more remote areas is limited.
