An excellent new 3-part series featuring Robson Green discovers one of our own personal favourite trips - Hadrian's Wall Path! Watching it certainly got us thinking about walking Hadrian's Wall, so if you have watched the series, feel the same, and want to follow in his footsteps, here is some important information for you!
You don't have to rough it!
Whilst Robson camped out on his trip (which of course is very admirable!) you don't have to do the same, and on our Hadrian's Wall Path itineraries you can still enjoy the walk but have a little bit more comfort at the end of the day. We will book all of your accommodation for you and you will stay in small, friendly B&B's, guesthouses, and inns. Quite often the owners of these establishments are fountains of local knowledge and will undoubtedly add to your experience of walking Hadrian's Wall. We will also transfer your luggage for you each day so you don't have to worry about lugging those big backpacks around the various Roman forts you will discover on the way!

You may have seen Robson tucking into a ham sandwich with Pease Pudding on his walk. But you may be surprised to learn that this isn't the only Northumbrian 'delicacy' you can expect to tuck into on your walk. To read more about some of the famous food in this area, and what you can expect to find read our blog on Eating and Drinking on Hadrian's Wall.
Historical highlights of Hadrian's Wall
You see Robson starting his walk at Segedunum Roman Fort but this is just the first of many fascinating Roman sites along the trail. Other must-see stopovers include Corbride Roman Town, Chesters Roman Fort, Housesteads and Vindolanda. You can read more about all of these highlights in our blog here.
