Hadrian's Wall is an 84 mile walk from Wallsend to Bowness on Solway, or vice versa, but we think the 32 mile stretch between Heddon on the Wall and Gilsland is by far the most scenic and interesting part of the Hadrian's Wall path.


So, with that in mind, we have created a four night, three day walking break covering that particular area of Hadrian's Wall, using hand- picked accommodation, taking in all of the important sites and breathtaking views without leaving you too shattered to enjoy them.


We are a local company with local knowledge and have been associated with Hadrian's Wall for a number of years.  We have listened to the comments and suggestions from many walkers who have completed the Hadrian's Wall Trail and this is what we believe is the best way to try it!
