Walk Coast-to-Coast along Hadrian’s Wall

Hadrian’s Wall Path is a wild, wonderful walking holiday from coast to coast, much of which is in the magnificent and rugged remote countryside of the Northumberland National Park.  Walking along Hadrian’s Wall you enjoy landscape, history and remote scenery largely unchanged since Roman sentries looked out from Hadrian’s Wall over the wild areas – north to Scotland and south towards the Lake District.

  • The beauty of the Northumberland National Park - the least populated & most remote in the UK
  • Panoramic views from Housesteads Roman Fort, set high on a rugged escarpment commanding 360 degree views
  • Roman Forts of Segedunum, Chesters, Housesteads and Birdoswald

Walking Through History

Hadrian’s Wall Path takes you from Wallsend by the River Tyne through the remote spectacular scenery of central Northumbria, descending, past Carlisle, to the lonely marshes of the Solway, the most northerly point of the Roman Empire.

Carving through the unpopulated Northumbrian landscape, the combination of rugged beauty and history makes for stimulating walking. Along the walk are fascinating ruins and history; you pass turrets, forts and milecastles brimming with Roman history and archaeology.

Hadrian's Wall: the largest Roman artefact

In AD122, Hadrian’s Wall took the soldiers of Hadrian’s 2nd/6th legions just over a decade to build the 73-mile barrier coast to coast across England guarding the northern limits of the Roman Empire. Their astonishing achievement across England remains the largest ancient monument in northern Europe and a Roman World Heritage Site.

Large garrison forts like Birdoswald were built all along the line. Stretched out between these, every 1/3 of mile a watchturret and every mile little forts, the mileforts.

It enabled Romans to command with efficiency and speed as every milecastle turret can directly see a fort. In its heyday, this intimidating structure was manned by 10,000 soldiers.

Walking Hadrian’s Wall it is impossible not to become fascinated by the history and feeling the presence of everyday Roman military and domestic life.

Path Walkthrough

Hadrian's Wall Path walk map
Our Hadrian's Wall Path walking route takes you from coast to coast

The path is widely regard as one of the more accessible, less challenging National Trail paths with routes over moorland and rolling field reaching their highest point at 345m (Green Slack). However, the walk can be fairly wild in places, with the grassy paths that make up this route shifting to the craggy sandstone, typical to this area, that skirts around some of the higher escarpments off the side of the path itself.

With the wall at your side, navigation is not a pressing issue when it comes to walking the Hadrian's Wall Path. The route is also finely delineated with National Trail way-markers - not to mention the fact that you'll be well-equipped with all guidebooks and route information - so you should be able to avoid any ambiguities in navigation while out on this trail.

Choose from a range of Hadrian’s Wall Path Holiday Options

Walk West To East

Walking Hadrian’s Wall Path from West to East is physically easier and typically more picturesque than the conventional East to West direction.

Hadrian’s Wall was built across the beautiful, but wild Northumbrian countryside. Weather on England’s northernmost border can prove unpredictable; walking eastwards, in poor conditions, you have wind and rain at your back, not driving against you.

In fine weather (come summer there is plenty), the afternoon sun is behind you, not in your eyes and the emerging light brings those far flung corners of the terrain into focus. Many classic views are arguably best seen from West to East – such as Crag Lough, Cuddy’s Crags, Sewingshield Crags and Limestone Corner.

Walking East from Solway coast to Wallsend, Roman sites become progressively interesting. Each day peels back insights and examples of everyday Roman military and domestic life as you head from Carlisle towards Newcastle-which seems anti-climactic when travelling East to West. Plus, Newcastle is a wonderful place to end your walk and perhaps spend an extra day of your trip.

Walk East to West

The customary way to walk Hadrian’s Wall is East to West, for three old accepted reasons:

  • Hadrian built his Wall starting in Newcastle, mainly for ease of supply of materials and military backup.
  • Exploration of the Roman sites progressed westwards from Newcastle, and archaeologically numbered and mapped in that direction, rather than for any walking.
  • When Hadrian’s Wall Path was designated a National Trail, the National Trail Guide (the only guide at the time) described the Trail in this direction. This has since changed with the support of excellent guidebooks, as well as the Harvey walker’s map which caters for both directions that Celtic Trails' supplies. Today, there are also useful mobile apps to help you along the way.

Walk the Best of Hadrian's Wall

For a shorter break, we've put together a five night itinerary that takes in some of the more memorable aspects of the wall's history. You'll visit some of the most significant Roman sites in the area, staying in quaint Cumbrian and Northumbrian towns along the way with our dedicated itinerary.

'Classic Plus' Upgrades

We can upgrade your accommodation on this trail to a higher standard to include Country Inns, Country House B&Bs, small Hotels and a charming boutique Country Hotel. As with our other itineraries - we can adjust and tailor a custom 'Classic Plus' itinerary to your needs.

  • Best Time to Travel

    Holiday arrival/departure dates: You choose which day you would like your holiday to start on.  We will book your holiday in accordance with your requirements.

    Britain experiences its fair share of rainfall, and its likely that you will encounter at least one downpour on your way across the wall. However, from April to September you're a lot more likely to find extended daylight hours, with dry conditions for walking.

    We do not recommend walking the path in winter, when the path and the wall are at their most fragile and renovation works are often scheduled.

Hi Penny. Just got home and wanted to send a quick note saying thank you for all of your arrangements for our Hadrian's Walk. While I realise this is what we pay for when contracting your services, it was such a pleasant trip and that is thanks to you. From how the first night blip was handled to the sub-contractors you use, everything was wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend Celtic Trails to anyone and hope to use your services again in the future for another adventure.

Celtic Trails more than met my expectations - they exceeded them :-) We particularly enjoyed being outside the wall as the Romans did. You appreciate hard work and engineering skills much more walking the whole thing. What was great about a long-distance walking holidays was spending time with my husband; the teamwork and having a goal every day.

My in-laws recommended you and you met our expectations. Transfers were perfect (drivers were so helpful and flexible), the scenery was spectacular and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.

We have never done a walking holidays before and Celtic Trails met our expectations. We enjoyed the challenge, as well as the scenery and history of Hadrian's Wall.

The best thing about this holidays was walking the wall, the accommodations and the social evenings. I have walked with you before and you have met my expectations again.

We enjoyed the range of accommodations - little B&Bs to more established, comfortable accommodations.

We really enjoyed the scenery, especially over crags. On the whole, our accommodation was excellent and we understand we booked standard accommodation; if I were to undertake another of these holidays, I would prefer to pay more to have accommodation of a consistent standard (we cannot rate Walwick highly enough).

"Celtic Trails - you did an excellent job - everything went smoothly, making for a worry-free trip! We are already planning our next Celtic Trails vacation! Please thank the baggage transfer company for us - their work was excellent, as well!"

"Well organised, clear instructions, B&B's were of a high standard - better than expected - all very good/excellent. As this was my first experience of a long-distance walking I had nothing to compare it with. However, it has made me want to do more holidays like this. We were very lucky with the weather which helped. My 23 year old daughter also enjoyed it and it was great to spend a whole week with her in such a wonderful environment."

What we enjoyed most was the scenery, bag transfer and the quality of the B&Bs. A long distance walking holiday is a great way to see the country side and to get fit.

"It was a good quality family time. We have a 13yr old son. Often on holidays we end up 'doing our own thing' reading, swimming or whatever. But after a bit of a sulky 1st day we got into the spirit of it and had a lovely time; chatting and so on. Admin was very efficient. Quick responses. Walk tailored to our needs. When the pack didn't arrive at our home, one was sent to our first B&B. We would be happy to use Celtic Trails again, excellent service."

"All went perfectly, very impressively co-ordinated. The walk was a big challenge and we all proud to have completed it, its time for reflection, meeting among other travelers. It was a fabulous experience and I’d like to do it again, on another walk organised by Celtic Trails."

"Please let me congratulate again for the rapidity and effectiveness that you have shown by organising the whole trip on a very late request of mine. The experience we had with you/Celtic Trails was excellent and we’d like to try another one in the future. Before contacting you, we contacted another company – they told me that they could not organise the trip at such a short notice. Your attitude made the difference. The material was complete to even to the slightest detail and such a thoroughness was extremely appreciated."
