Customer reviews from the Hadrian's Wall Path

“I have dreamed of walking Hadrian's wall for 45 years. Doing so was a dream come true. The walk from Chollerford to Steel Rigg was a real physical and mental challenge compounded by the fact that it was very windy and there was horizontal rain. At the end of that day I felt fortunate to have done it. I highly recommend the walk plus I recommend booking with Contours.”
Mrs Wright, UK
“The two sections we walked were stunning and others who were walking the whole of Hadrian’s Wall said that these were by far the best sections.”
Mrs Beard, Australia
“This was a wonderful walk. We've shared the experience with many of our friends, and they all talk about it being on their "bucket list."”
Dr Coffey, USA
“Just wanted to let you know we had a FANTASTIC time on this walk. The accommodation exceeded our expectations in EVERY town. It was excellent. You obviously know how important it is to have good clean accommodation at the end of a decent walking day. All our hosts were very friendly and provided advice about where to eat.”
Mr Davies, Australia
“We were very lucky with the weather and we had a very memorable holiday together with our dog Dilly.”
Mrs Hunter, UK
“The accommodation was really good and the route markings are very clear. We have always found all the Contours staff to be incredibly nice and helpful. I love the whole concept & style of how Contours works, the luggage transport and all the accommodation has been great.”
Mrs Mccourt, UK
“Well organised, great accommodation, everything went smoothly and good value for money.”
Mr Anderson, USA
“We loved every minute, despite the weather not being great.”
Mrs Lewis, UK
“All sections were lovely - most obvious Wall sections and forts in the mid-sections, but the section out of Newcastle has wonderful historic interest, and the views on approaching Bowness are beautiful.”
Mrs Yates, London
