It has great views, don't get me wrong. However, I preferred walking at the other less congested sections of the wall.

Well worth the visit to see this regional Roman fort. The visitor centre sets the scene and the remains bring it to life. The scale of Hadrian's Wall must have been immense. Concur with other reviewer, amazing to think I walked where actual Roman soldiers...More

Well I've wanted to visit Hadrian's Wall forever - and wow I wasn't disappointed. I absolutely loved it. Even though the weather was awful it didn't spoil our visit to this fantastic place

When you get to the Visitor's Center, you buy your ticket and take a 10-minute walk/hike to the actual site, along a path surrounded by sheep. In my everyday life, I don't have much interaction with sheep, so just that was pretty interesting in itself....More

Great setting at the top of the hill, in an isolated position. Good explanatory film and exhibition. Well preserved wall footings, easy to understand the layout of the fort. Had a pleasant, short walk along Hadrians wall.

Wow! To walk in a Roman Fort and to see what daily life was like is amazing. It is quite a walk-about a half mile on hilly terrain. Wear sturdy shoes.

If your interested in history this place is a great place to visit but is a brisk and steep 15 minute walk, but you're rewarded with stunning views across Northumberland. The Roman fort is of more interest than I expected as the ruins are quite...More
