Customer reviews from the Hadrian's Wall Path

“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
“The words I use don't convey how great it was. It's one of the best things I've done in my life. Having all the accommodation and luggage transfers organised by your good selves meant we could just focus on the hike.”
