Trip 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.
This perfect family friendly short break takes in key sections of the Hadrian's Cycleway exploring the best this World Heritage Site has to offer. This wonderful 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, the route takes in some of the most beautiful parts of England and skirts a number of fascinating Roman sites including Birdoswald Fort, Walltown Quarry, Great Chesters Fort, Vindolanda and Corstopitum at Corbridge.
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 family cycling tour in the UK suitable for the leisure cyclist and families on quiet roads, traffic free paths and National Cycle Network routes? Then the Hadrian's Explorer is the tour for you. We also offer a 4 or 6 day version covering the whole of the Hadrian's Cycleway from Bowness-on-Solway in the West to Tynemouth in the East and it and can also be done as a 4 day supported trip - contact us for details.
