Hadrian’s Wall Walking Holiday

84 miles. Hadrian’s Wall Walking Holiday

“A lesson in history amongst remote and unspoilt countryside”

Hadrian’s Wall path crosses the north of England from the North to Irish Sea. It is 84 miles long and is book marked by two large cities, Newcastle and Carlisle. Between the cities is the remote country of northern England, intermingled with traditional villages, farms and of course the wall itself.

The itinerary below is the most popular but you may wish to plan shorter or longer days. Just let us know what is your preference on the enquiry form or call to discuss what is best.

For more details on Hadrian’s Wall (and my personal account of the walk) refer to our Hadrian’s Wall section.
