The very warmest welcome awaits visitors to the Roman Wall. Almost 2000 years ago the wall marked the boundary of the most northern point of Rome's mighty empire. Today, England's largest World Heritage Site is surrounded by stunning countryside and offers mile upon mile of unique, exhilarating walks and some of the best cycling in the area.
This magnificent monument has had a surge in popularity since the opening of the Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail - a coast to coast footpath that begins in Newcastle, in the east and ends on the Solway Firth, in the west.
Walkers following the 83 mile trail will enjoy an ever-changing landscape, from the riverside route along the Tyne, through farmland in Tynedale including the highest point of the trail at Winsheils Crag (1130ft), gradually descending to the richer pastures of Cumbria and finally to the open salt marsh of the Solway Estuary.
There are many visitor centre’s and points of interest along the whole 83miles of the trail, and with more forts and castles than in any other part of the country, it’s no wonder so many people choose to stay in the area and explore. There is a public bus service which runs the entire length of the wall, stopping at most facilities.
So, whether you are passing through or want a central base from which to visit the numerous attractions, Winsheilds Camp Site is perfectly situated .
