Visit the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England, Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall. The wall was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. In 2005, it became part of the transnational "Frontiers of the Roman Empire" World Heritage Site. Learn the history at the archaeological sites and museums along the wall, take in the dramatic views, and examine forts, mile-castles, and temples. Don’t miss the solitary tree featured in the film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” or Wylam, the birthplace of pioneering railway engineer and inventor George Stephenson. Explore by foot or bike, but take care with the fragile landscape (walkers are asked to follow the path during summer months).

Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall reviews
No better place for a brisk Sunday walk along Hadrian’s wall. Easy pay and display car park, well signposted tracks and the most spectacular views. more »
Good picnic site with public toilets. Due to the Covid situation, the cafe is only open certain days - but the opening hours information is given on their website. Good for short walks more »
Fantastic place to see the wall, beautiful scenery. There is a tiny area with free parking down a single track road, then a footpath across a field and up a steep hill, it's worth it though
This was a lovely walk, we had nice weather. Saw a great section of the wall.
