Hadrian’s Wall Path, 84 miles from end to end, follows the course of northern Europe’s largest surviving Roman monument, a 2nd-century fortification built – in the border country between England and Scotland – on the orders of the Emperor Hadrian in AD122.
Hadrian’s Wall Path is the first National Trail to follow the course of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This week-long walk is regarded as one of the least challenging of the National Trails.
Fourth edition entirely rewalked with all accommodation and each place to eat fully checked.
- 7 town plans, 12 colour overview maps and 45 large scale walking maps – at just under 1:20,000 – showing route times, places to stay, points of interest and much more
- Itineraries for all walkers – whether walking the route in its entirety over seven to eight days or sampling the highlights on day walks and short breaks
- Practical information for all budgets, all updated for the new edition – camping, bunkhouses, hostels, B&Bs, pubs and hotels; Newcastle through to Bowness – where to stay, where to eat, what to see, plus detailed street plans
