Hadrian's Wall Path


    Route and Accommodation Guide




84 miles (134km) usually walked from Wallsend on the east coast to Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast because the official guidebook describes the route in this direction. Hadrianís Wall was built under the orders of Emperor Hadrian in AD 122 to mark the northern limit of the Roman empire. Even though much of the Wall has now disappeared it has been inscribed as a World Heritage Site.


A mix of rural walking with sections of urban paths, sometimes surfaced, through Newcastle and Carlisle. Remember that the Wall is a fragile and irreplaceable ancient monument and is particularly vulnerable in the winter months. Please try to avoid walking it in large groups between November and Easter.
