Walltown Visitor Information Centre and Shop

Walltown Northumberland National Park Visitor Information Centre is located in Walltown Quarry Country Park, near Greenhead on the southern border of the National Park.   The site is also great to explore Walltown with its tall crags around the large hollow left after quarrying.  Here you can see where Hadrian's Wall was built on the north facing edge of a great wave of volcanic rock. You can experience woodlands, meadows, wildlife lakes, with pleasant circular walks enjoyed by everyone including those in wheelchairs and buggies. The friendly information centre staff have in-depth knowledge of the area to help you make the most of your visit.
