Hadrians Wall

Following the Traces of the Romans.

Famous Hadrians Wall once served the Roman Empire as fortification against the wild tribes of the Picts and Scots in the north of England. The remarkable earthen wall still can be traced and many Roman forts are still visible. „Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail“stretches over 84 miles from Bowness-on-Solway in the west to Wallsend in the east. On this tour you cross some of the most beautiful parts of England – from undulating green meadows and solitary wild moors to the lively centres Newcastle and Carlisle.
