Haltwhistle Tips

for walking Hadrian's Wall its best to start in the west and have the wind on your back don't plan too long a day some parts are very strenuous and you wont have time to explore the excavations and forts + museums . the Hadrian's Wall bus runs until the end of October so its possible to stay in one place and not have to carry your bags and keep unpacking its still possible to explore most of the wall by bus after that as there is a bus from Carlisle to Housesteads Fort and museum twice a day all through the year the best starting point to see the central section of Hadrian's Wall (the bit with all the excavations and museums ) is The Roman Army Museum at Greenhead.
