Hadrian's Wall

Work your way along Hadrian's Wall, "the Northern frontier of a mighty empire that once covered the known world" and do as the Romans did.

A World Heritage site built by Emperor Hadrian and his 15,000 men, Hadrian's Wall remains one of Britain's greatest monuments. It covers 73 miles of mile castles, barracks, ramparts and forts scattered across diverse landscapes and dramatic countryside. Uncover ancient Roman Britain at its forts along the wall, from Segedunum in Wallsend to Arbeia in South Shields, offering fascinating exhibitions, storytelling and unique artefacts.
