"Walking Hadrian's Wall" Top 5 Page for this destination Northumberland by hayward68

Northumberland Travel Guide: 366 reviews and 1,157 photos

One of the many places I'd always wanted to visit in the UK was Hadrian's Wall. I don't know why I'm so fascinated with it but I am. This long wall built across the north of England to keep the invading "barbarians" in the north away. Needless to say I had to visit this piece of England's ancient past. VT'er Steventilly and his lovely wife Susan were my guides that day as I'd been staying with them. So off we set with our hiking boots and maps in hand!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A chance to walk part of England's past
  • Cons:It can be quite windy, rainy and cold up there
  • In a nutshell:History comes to life
  • Last visit to Northumberland: May 2002

    Planning to travel around Northumberland later this year -- I've never seen Hadrian's Wall (terrible admission for an Englishman!) -- thanks for the information, a very nice page.

    Hmm... hiking Hadrian's Wall from end to end. It'll probably take a few days. Sounds fun. It's in my wish list now. Thanks for sharing.

    What a cool, history-filled landmark! Wish I had seen it when I was briefly in Northumberland.

    Nice travel. I want to see the wall too. I'm hoping to do it next year. Knowing a bit of history and having read Julius Caesar's own War of Gauls, I'm really wondering who were the barbarians...

    I love history and this looks like a great place to do some history exploring. Great photos and information, and why shouldn't Susan read the map?
