Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site

Built to guard the wild northern frontier of the Roman Empire in AD122, Hadrian’s Wall was more than just a barricade; it was a vibrant and multi-cultural occupied military zone of mile-castles, barracks, ramparts, forts and settlements; sprawling almost 80 miles in length from the North Sea to the Irish Sea. The building of the Wall required vision and an outstanding level of engineering skill. Set amongst the wild beauty of Cumbrian and Northumbrian landscapes, it still impresses today and stands as a testimony to the power and reach of the mighty Roman Empire. 

Following new Government guidelines, car parks and toilets will remain open, however some Hadrian’s Wall attractions will be closing temporarily until the 2nd of December 2020. Under the new restrictions people can exercise outdoors or visit an outdoor public place – please consult our partners’ websites for further details.

Information on new national restrictions can be viewed here

When in Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, in order to protect, respect, and enjoy your experience, please stick to the two metre rule and social distancing measures, wash hands or use hand sanitiser whenever possible, and wear a face mask when entering any indoor space such as toilet facilities.
