On this event we will be following in the footsteps of Roman legionnaires over rolling fields and rugged moorlands, covering the entire length of Hadrian’s Wall.
The Wall stretches 84miles from, the appropriately named, Wallsend on the North East coast all the way to Bowness-on-Solway in the East. Walking around 6 to 7 hours per day, with regular “tea and cake” stops, along the undulating, but relatively flat and easy footpath. The path runs parallel to (and in some sections along ) the Wall.
We will supply (if req.) pickup from Newcastle airport and then back again at the end of the walk (plus for anyone else who needs a lift back to Newcastle from Carlisle after the event) + Walking leader, minibus transfers, hotel, etc. All walking equipment can be loaned for free if required.
You will need to arrive in Newcastle by late morning on Tuesday so that you are ready to start walking at 11am prompt. This is important as we will be starting at Wallsend (Newcastle) and we need to get through the built up areas so that we can get out of the city and on to the more scenic sections as soon as possible.
At the end of each day’s walk we will transport you by coach to the hotel and then (next morning) drop you back to the same point to start that day’s walking.
We will be staying for the first 2 nights in the Newcastle area and the last 3 nights in the Carlisle area. This is due to there not being any large hotels along the route.
You may depart from the last nights hotel (Carlisle) at any time on Sunday morning. If you do not require accommodation on Saturday night after the event then please inform us. Should you require transport back to Newcastle on Sunday morning, the coach will depart from Carlisle at 9.30a.m. arriving in Newcastle approx 11am.
