Let us help you plan your route, and choose from a variety of suitable accommodation.

84-miles steeped in history with outstanding views, welcoming pubs, and ancient market towns, from Wallsend, Newcastle-upon-Tyme in the east to Bowness-on-Solway in the west.

It is hard to believe that the Roman occupation ended roughly 1600 years ago, the trail is approximately 4-miles longer than the wall itself. Whilst you may wish to visit the Roman Army Museum en route there are plenty of other attractions unrelated to the conquering armies of Rome. In Tyneside, for example there’s the Baltic Arts Centre, and the birth place of railway legend George Stephenson, run by The National Trust.

Much of the land remains unchanged since Victorian times, picturesque fields give way to hardy moorland, which accounts for the spectacular views into Scotland, you can even see the journey’s end at Bowness-on-Solway from, roughly the half way point in the trail. A patch or two of woodland breaks up these views as you approach Carlisle, which offers walkers who have made it this far, a welcome change.

As you approach the final stage of the journey, the temperate landscape slopes towards the River Eden and Solway, the peace and quiet amplified by the gentle sounds of birds. Time for a well deserved rest and cooling refreshment at your final destination.
