Visit the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England, Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall. The wall was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. In 2005, it became part of the transnational "Frontiers of the Roman Empire" World Heritage Site. Learn the history at the archaeological sites and museums along the wall, take in the dramatic views, and examine forts, mile-castles, and temples. Don’t miss the solitary tree featured in the film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” or Wylam, the birthplace of pioneering railway engineer and inventor George Stephenson. Explore by foot or bike, but take care with the fragile landscape (walkers are asked to follow the path during summer months).

Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall Reviews
After a fairly easy walk you get up close and personal with a very impressive wall which is worth a visit. Live history you can touch. more »
Eeuwenoude grens, gemaakt en achtergelaten door de Romeinen. De muur kronkelt door het landschap en past zich aan het landschap. Daardoor nooit recht. Prachtig! Op deze plaats een mooie klim naar de m... more »Centuries-old border, made and left by the Romans. The wall twists through the landscape and adapts to the landscape. Therefore never straight. Beautiful! At this place a nice climb to the wall and downstairs a nicely maintained picnic place.
Fantastic place to see the wall, beautiful scenery. There is a tiny area with free parking down a single track road, then a footpath across a field and up a steep hill, it's worth it though
This was a lovely walk, we had nice weather. Saw a great section of the wall.
