Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The 84-mile path running alongside it is dotted with ancient settlements, forts and fascinating museums.
One of the best sections to walk is the 20-mile stretch between Chollerford (near Hexham station) to Birdoswald Fort (east of Carlisle). This is the highest section of the Wall, offering magnificent views of the Lake District and Pennines. Better still, it can be done over a weekend. Don’t miss the interactive History of the Wall exhibition at the Roman Army Museum at Carvoran.
