The Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail is a fascinating and rewarding coast-to-coast walk from the North Sea to the Irish Sea alongside the iconic Hadrian’s Wall in Northern England. It is Britain’s biggest Roman archaeological feature and a UNESCO World Heritage Site and opened in 2003. Hadrian's Wall is located near the border between modern-day Scotland and England and follows the course of the Roman wall closely. The route is one of Britain’s most popular long-distance walks.

The Hadrian’s Wall Path is 84 miles long, which is equal to 135 kilometers. The route is divided into 6 stages, from Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway. You can also choose to do this walk in more days, and walk the whole trek in 8 stages, then check out this 10-day package.
