Holiday Information

Hadrian’s Wall country is quite simply a cyclist’s paradise with its stunning landscapes and sense of history, from the bloody border feuds of the Border Reivers to being home to Europe’s largest surviving Roman monument, Hadrian’s Wall. Built in AD122 under the orders of Emperor Hadrian, the wall stretched for 73 miles between the tidal Tyne at Newcastle in the east to the Solway Firth in the west, and was successful in controlling the northern frontier of the Roman Empire. In 1987 Hadrian’s Wall was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the most protected landscape anywhere in the United Kingdom and ranks alongside the pyramids in Egypt and the Taj Mahal in India.
Utilising the National Cycle Network, we cycle along the northern boundary of the Roman Empire, starting and finishing at either end of Hadrian’s Wall. This wonderfully mellow cycling break follows in the footsteps of Roman soldiers, allowing you to experience some of the rich heritage that Cumbria and Northumberland have to offer, from cycling in open hill country, through peaceful river valleys and finishing at the North Sea in Tynemouth. The route passes through some of the most beautiful parts of England and skirts a number of fascinating Roman sites including Birdoswald Fort, Walltown Quarry, Great Chesters Fort and Vindolanda.
This self-guided trip is for a minimum of 2 people and accommodation, transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back up are all included. We also provide detailed route notes and maps to enable you to do the route self-guided. Nothing could be simpler!
Looking for a UK family cycling holiday on quiet roads, traffic free paths and National Cycle Network routes? Then Hadrian's Cycleway is the holiday for you. This trip can also be done over 4 days and also as a 4 day supported trip

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

This trip is ideal for active families who cycle regularly and are looking for a cycling holiday with lots of fun and adventure to be had! The trip is place to place, so your children must be able to cycle the distances stated on the dossier. The terrain is mainly on cycle tracks and hilly in places with some cheeky climbs. There are also some small off-road sections and the occasional stretch that takes you alongside the main road so your children must be comfortable and safe cycling in this environment.
