Hadrian’s Wall was the north-west frontier of the Roman empire for nearly 300 years. At 73 miles it marches across northern Britain from sea to sea. The most famous of all the frontiers of the Roman empire, Hadrian’s Wall was made a World Heritage Site in 1987.
Today you can explore the Wall’s rich history and its dramatic landscape at over twenty fascinating sites, including Housesteads Roman Fort, Chesters Roman Fort, Corbridge Roman Town and Birdoswald Roman fort.
Hadrian’s Wall is just 19 miles from the Kirkstyle Inn, with beautiful views along the way. You might like to visit the English Heritage site for details of tours and family days out.
