Hadrians Wall

Hadrians Wall - The Highlights Chollerford to Lanercost Priory - 4 Days

The Hadrians Wall Trail is an 84 mile path following the route of the original wall. Hadrians Wall is a World Heritage Site and our route takes us from Bowness on Solway and finishes in Wallsend at Segedunum.

This trip takes you over 4 days and allows you to take a more leisurely pace looking at the central sections.

There will be plenty of time to stop off and explore along the way.
