North of the Wall
Mini adventure inspiration
Here is another day trip mini-adventure idea, a visit to Hadrian's Wall. If you are feeling endurance minded you can run or walk the whole length, although these options take more than a day trip. Or you can time you visit as 'winter is coming' for a Game of Throne style adventure, feeling brave? You can try your luck heading North of the Wall.
Do it yourself
Hadrian's Wall runs through Cumbria, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. Visit English Heritage to find out about the sites that they run along the wall showing the Roman history, including opportunities to dress up as a Roman soldier and relax with tea and cake.
If you fancy running or walking the wall then there is 84 miles of Hadrian's Wall path for you to take on. It is an established long distance footpath and there are a number of options for accommodation and baggage transfers along the route. The National Trail website contains loads more information on the route and planning your walk.
