Hadrian's Wall

Lake District & Northern England, United Kingdom

The stunning World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall runs 73 miles from coast to coast through dramatic upland scenery. A visit to Hadrian’s Wall, one of Europe’s most important Roman monuments, lets you vividly experience Roman life and an epic history.

Experience Britain's greatest Roman monument and immerse yourself in the dynamic story of Rome's furthermost frontier. Hadrian's Wall stretches across the north of England from the Cumbrian Roman coastal defences at Ravenglass to Wallsend in Tyneside.

Construction began in the year 122, and much of the wall is still in outstanding condition. Particular highlights include the dramatic section of wall between Cawfields and Walltown Crags, and the Temple of Mithras in Carrawburgh.

Hadrian's Wall really does have something for everyone - world class archaeology, spectacular landscapes and fortifications, rare wildlife, complete solitude and excellent museums and exhibitions that bring into sharp relief the lives of Roman legionnaires 1,600 years after they left.
