Holiday Information

This fantastic supported cycling holiday in the UK utilises the National Cycle Network. This trip travels along the northern boundary of Britannia and the Roman Empire, starting and finishing at either end of Emperor Hadrian’s Wall.
During the ride you will be able to follow in the footsteps of Roman soldiers, whilst experiencing some of the rich heritage that Cumbria and Northumberland have to offer.
Hadrian's Cycleway is a great cycling alternative to our ever popular C2C cycling trip, and suitable for those looking for an easier C2C option.
This coast to coast holiday boasts open hill country, peaceful river valleys, and a finish on the seafront at Tynemouth next to the Priory and nearby impressive beaches - a favourite for local surfers. You will be supported by a vehicle and driver all the way, who will provide refreshments and lunch en-route, and will carry bike spares and tools.
Accommodation is in well-appointed bed and breakfasts, inns or small family run hotels. Breakfasts and lunches are provided, and evening meals enjoyed in restaurants or pubs close to the accommodation.
If you’re looking for a cycling holiday on quiet roads, traffic-free paths and National Cycle Network routes - then Hadrian's Cycleway is the holiday for you.
If you fancy extending your ride, take a look at our 6 day self-guided Coast and Castles option where you can continue on from Tynemouth to Edinburgh, with six more fantastic days of cycling. The Coast and Castles route takes you up the stunning Northumberland Coast, along the Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders, and over the Moorfoot Hills into Edinburgh. Please let us know if you'd like to extend your trip!
If you're interested in doing this holiday with children, then check out our family version of this trip where you may find the information more relevant to your needs.
Like any of our UK supported trips, Hadrian's Cycleway is also available as a private departure for groups of friends, colleagues, families or anyone else! If our standard dates don't work, or you would like a slightly altered itinerary, or you would prefer a trip just for your group please give us a call for a chat.
