Little of a stroll from the car park up to the wall but the views are well worth it. The little museum has history about the wall and it is pretty interesting to learn about it all. Stunning views of the countryside at the top.

We caught the AD 122 at Hexham rail station and got off at the Housesteads section of the wall. We did not view the museum as we wanted to start our walk along the wall. It was without question the best part of our visit...More

This part of Hadrian's Wall is probably one the best remaining ruins of this once impressive network of forts. It is a steep trek to get there, but I am a history buff so it was worth it. I find it amazing that something constructed...More

Housestead is much larger than you initially think it will be. Foundations are well unearthed, signage excellent, and movement throughout the site easy. It was a cold, rainy day when we visited, which actually added to the experience. Once you have wandered though the excavation...More
