Have you ever dreamed of walking Hadrian's Wall?
DATES: 12th-18th September 2020

Includes guide book & Hadrian's Wall passport
84 mile guided long-distance walk from coast to coast.
Training and preparation weekend is 1st/2nd August 2020

The full or part of the 84 miles (135km) of Hadrian’s Wall Path is a delightful trip from coast to coast in England, taking in the remains of the Roman wall, built to keep the Scots out of England.  In its day, the wall was a remarkable edifice and well-preserved sections of it still remain today along with several museums dedicated to taking you back to those heady days.
It is one of Britain’s most popular long-distance walks and one of the most pleasant to walk of the National Trails in the UK. Hadrian's Wall Path is extremely well waymarked, therefore, you can choose to walk with Julia, or if you prefer to start with the group and then venture off on your own then we will simply communicate via issued radio's or WhatsApp to make sure that everyone is safe.
We walk through some of the wildest and most beautiful scenery in England and enjoy regular viewings of forts, castles, turrets, museums and visitor centres all along the wall.  It will be a journey of discovery in more ways than one.
For this trail, we will be carrying our rucksacks, however, if this does not sound very appealing then we can arrange luggage transfer for an additional cost of £10 per day if you so wish.  This will need to be booked in advance.


Walking with a small group of no more than 10 people.
A very friendly, welcoming, fully qualified and experienced walk leader on the ground to guide you the way.
Medical support for minor medical needs. (All guides carry a first aid kit and are first aid qualified).
A pre-walk training day with a presentation explaining the itinerary, what to expect and answering all of your questions.
A guide book and full packing list.
A Hadrian's Wall Passport (Collecting all seven stamps from the stamping stations along the way entitles you to buy the exclusive purple enamel badge and achievers' certificate)


Insurance (you will need your own travel insurance).
Accommodation (although, see the accommodation tab)
Baggage transfer – optional extra
Food and meals

Full price is £160.00 with a 30% deposit of £48 per person to secure your spot. We will invoice you on 31st July for the balance. 
IMPORTANT: Please book 1st & 2nd August in your diary for the training weekend.
Immerse yourself in history along Hadrian's Wall as you join Julia on one of her many adventures.  This is a truly fascinating and rewarding walk in England, as we make our way across a whole country from the east coast to the west coast alongside one of Britain’s iconic landmarks.  To mark the occasion we will be dipping our toes in the North Sea before we leave, and eight days later we will dip our toes in the Irish sea before heading home.
