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
“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
“Did this trip once before, in 2010, you’ve seriously upped your game in terms of accommodations. They were amazing this time. Perfect combination of history and scenery. Seamless luggage transfers and accommodations means we put on our boots and go. All else is taken care of.”
