Take in the wonderful views of Hadrian's Wall which was built by 15,000 men and is now a designated Unesco World Heritage site since 1987. It was the brainchild of Emperor Hadrian, who ordered its construction in AD122 to hold back the advancing Barbarians in northern England. Much of the wall still exists, and it navigates some of Britain's most ruggedly and stunning landscape, and highlights a remarkable and dramatic walk through history. As you follow Hadrian's footsteps from the west coast to the east coast, from Bowness on Solway, past Carlisle to Newcastle, you encounter a string of milecastles and forts, jaw-dropping vistas and details of life from two thousand years ago.

To this World Heritage walk we have added stays in rustic, historic and boutique hotels, and private transfers to these and key related Roman sites.
