This guided walking holiday offers the best of Hadrian’s Wall as a linear walk from west to east. It begins where the wall becomes increasingly more visible and takes in the best preserved highlights of the wall along the way. We walk the main section of the wall that contains such gems as the forts at Birdoswald, Housesteads and Chesters. We also walk past Sycamore Gap where Robin Hood’s tree stands proud in a dip in the landscape. It is thought to be one of the most photographed trees in the UK.
Join us for this guided walking holiday which offers a leisurely itinerary, exploring the heartland of Hadrian’s Wall and the exhibitions and forts which bring the wall to life. The walks are a mix of linear and circular routes based around the Roman Forts which were the strongholds of Hadrian’s fortifications.
We will be based in Haltwhistle, staying at the very comfortable Centre of Britain Hotel, known for its friendly hospitality and amazing food. It is a truly wonderful place to return to each evening after our walk.
