This is a photo guide to Hadrian's Wall Path which we combined with the Cumbria Way for a two week walk in June 2008. This is a great walk along the historic line of Hadrian's Wall, built in AD 122 to mark the northern boundary of the Roman empire in Britain.

The 84 mile route takes you from Wallsend in the east, to the coast at Bowness on Solway in the west. The sites of several Roman forts lie along the route including Segedunum at Wallsend, Chesters, Housesteads, Vindolanda and Birdoswald.

This page contains full details of all stages, or you can use the links on the right to view each individual stage. We have also collected together details of the accommodation we stayed in. We hope it will be of some use to those who may be planning to do the walk themselves, or encourage others to give it a try.

Please enjoy our report, and sign our guestbook or leave comments.
Rachael & Mark.
