Hadrian's Wall and Birdoswald Roman Fort

Information

Hadrian's Wall, walkersHadrian's Wall, just a stone's throw from Carlisle, is a fascinating World Heritage Site and the most important monument built by the Romans in Britain, still evoking a strong sense of standing on the edge of an empire.

Remains of the stone-built wall and regularly spaced forts, milecastles and turret stations can be seen along most of its 73-mile length, with some of the best examples near Birdoswald Roman Fort (approximately 16 miles east of Carlisle).

Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail has been specially devised to follow the course of the Wall, starting from Bowness-on-Solway and ending at Wallsend. For cyclists, Hadrian's Cycleway (National Route 72) tracks the line of Hadrian's Wall and continues down the Cumbrian coast to Ravenglass.

Sit back and relax as you to enjoy the sights and sounds of Hadrian’s Wall by bus. The seasonal AD122 service takes you back into Roman times where you can visit some of the highlights of Hadrian’s Wall Country.
