you would need a minimum of 6 hours,how ever there are small sections of the Wall on the outskirts of the city,just depends on how many hours you have. Regards, Peter

Response from Peter I | Property representative |
Newcastle is a compact city whereby you will only require around 2 hours to do a tour.Are there any other places that you may want to visit outside of the city ? Regards, Peter
