walking hadrian's wall west to east

My husband and I are doing this trek this July, also west to east, but taking almost twice as long as you. Other accommodation in Heddon-on-the-Wall. Many people choose to miss out the early part of the walk and start at Corbridge. I'm Dave Dean.

The path follows this stone wall across England from coast to coast, so we could say “we walked across England!” This path seemed doable for our first walk – but still a challenge. The Hadrian’s Wall Path is an 84 mile (135 km) long National Trail stretching coast to coast across northern England, from Wallsend, Newcastle upon Tyne in the east to Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria on the west … What a grand walk you had!

This itinerary lists our preferred overnight stops for this tour.

Sadly this coincided with being up on the crags with little shelter. There are two significant cities at either end, but miles of wild countryside in between.
