Live British history at Hadrian's Wall

Hadrian's Wall is one of the most famous and ancient sites in British history. For 300 years, the wall was a military frontier spanning almost 80 miles east to west. Built by an expeditionary force of 15,000 men over the course of six years, it exists today as both an incredible historical relic and feat of ancient engineering. As you explore the turrets, shrines and houses, you'll really feel like you're living through British history.
