Hadrian's Wall - Guided Trip - Aug 2020
This unique fully guided walking holiday gives you an opportunity to see and experience the best parts of the Hadrian's Wall trail at a more relaxed pace including a visit to the Roman Army Museum. You will be accompanied throughout the trip by a fully qualified guide who will no doubt inspire you with their local knowledge, wit and charm. Their primary aim is to get you from the start to the finish safely and to ensure that you enjoy every aspect of the trail. Packed lunches are provided each day and accommodation is in specially selected small hotels, and farmhouses offering traditional mouthwatering breakfasts. Evening meals are available at each establishment or nearby and paid for locally.
There are one or two steep climbs and descents in the middle section of the walk, with reasonably level walking on the other days. Walking in excess of 14 miles on consecutive days can be taxing and needs careful preparation. However, this truly is a fantastic walking holiday in one of the most beautiful areas in England. Challenging but extremely rewarding, the sense of achievement after completing the Hadrians Wall walk is second to none. But don't take our word for it, the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail has previously been voted 'Britains Greatest Walking Trail' by Countryfile magazine. Need we say more?
Worried about the single room option? If you are happy to share a twin room with a like-minded person, then you don't have to pay for it!
