About Hadrian's Wall Half-Day Tour From Newcastle

What is Hadrian's Wall?

Hadrian's Wall is also known as the Picts' Wall or Roman Wall. Hadrian's Wall was the defensive fortification of Britannia, a Roman Province. It began during the emperor Hadrian's reign. Hadrian's Wall runs from Wallsend on the River Tyne on the eastern side and towards Bowness-on-Solway on the western side. The full width of the island was covered by Hadrian's Wall.

Some of the main parts of Hadrian's Wall are still left today and you can walk along the adjacent Hadrian's Wall path. It's located in northern England and the wall runs for 73 mi (117.5 km). In 1987, Hadrian's Wall was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You will see campsites along the wall path, but not in Newcastle and Carlisle.
