Create an itinerary including Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall
Visit the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England, Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall. The wall was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. In 2005, it became part of the transnational "Frontiers of the Roman Empire" World Heritage Site. Learn the history at the archaeological sites and museums along the wall, take in the dramatic views, and examine forts, mile-castles, and temples. Don’t miss the solitary tree featured in the film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” or Wylam, the birthplace of pioneering railway engineer and inventor George Stephenson. Explore by foot or bike, but take care with the fragile landscape (walkers are asked to follow the path during summer months).

  • Wow incredible that after all this time areas of the wall remain standing. Just demonstrates the skill of the roman soldiers and engineers who planned and constructed it. An amazing fete of engineering.
  • Bits and pieces of wall still in place. Amazing views. Wrap up warm as can be very windy but we did visit in April.
