Visiting Hadrian’s Wall Country: Coronavirus/COVID-19 Statement

We would like to thank the Wall's communities, and visitors for continuing to be understanding and responsible during this time.

Currently some Hadrian’s Wall attractions with open spaces are able to welcome back pre-booked visitors or offer a takeaway service. As the Government continues to ease lock-down restrictions, Hadrian's Wall attractions are continuing to look at how we can gradually reopen our visitor facilities and spaces.

We would like to ask that visitors are responsible and continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines when visiting, what is a living and working landscape on the Wall.
