About this event
For around three centuries, Hadrian’s Wall was a vibrant, multi-cultured frontier sprawling almost 80 miles coast-to-coast. We will be walking along Hadrian's Wall, a defensive fortification which begun in AD 122 in the reign of the emperor Hadrian.
Set high on a dramatic escarpment on Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, Housesteads Roman Fort takes you back to the Roman Empire. There will be some free time afterwards to wander the barrack blocks and the hospital. Peer into the oldest toilets you'll ever see, and admire the stunning panoramic views from this ancient fortress. Please note that there is a small entry fee to visit Housesteads Fort.
This trip will not include a stop at any villages so please make sure you bring food for the day with you.
We will depart by coach from the Parkinson Steps at 08:00 returning at approximately 18:30. We would like to emphasise the need for good outdoor walking shoes or boots, a waterproof jacket, a drinks bottle and a packed lunch and any snacks.
Please note: This is a more strenuous walk with some steep sections along rough paths. If you buy a ticket then please be prepared for this.
Please come in suitable footwear for uneven and unpaved terrain. We also recommend you bring: waterproof jacket, food and drink for during the walk and money for entry to Housesteads Fort if you wish
