Hadrian's Wall Path runs for 86 miles (138 kilometres) between Bowness-on-Solway and Wallsend (Newcastle) along the line of the Roman Wall completed in AD122 under the Emperor Hadrian. This National Trail crosses northern England from Irish Sea to North Sea and offers many chances to look at the forts, milecastles and interpretation centres within this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The route is clearly waymarked and well supported by public transport, giving flexibility to walk it in linear sections or as loop walks. Although the book's detailed description runs from west to east (Bowness to Wallsend), it includes notes for east-to-west walkers. For conservation reasons, you are encouraged to walk the Path between May and October. This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy a classic week's walking:
