EVENTS IN THE NORTH EAST
Just a handful of what's on offer .......
The Hadrian’s Wall Path stretches 135km (84 miles) from Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway snaking through some of the most spectacular Northumberland countryside , following the northern frontier of the ancient Roman Empire . You don’t need to walk the whole path though! We have a selection of circular walks , and attractions where you can view the best preserved parts of the wall.
