We spent a few hours here one afternoon while walking Hadrian's Wall. We were lucky enough to be in time for a guided tour. The tour was long but the guide had loads of very interesting info.

During a recent stay in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, we took the opportunity to take a short drive west along the A69 towards Hexham. A short distance north of the A69, you can find the amazing Hadrian's Wall that runs from Newcastle-upon-Tyne all the way west to Carlisle....More
