Getting to the start of the Hadrian’s Wall Path

[dropcap]The Hadrian’s Wall Path has to be one of the easiest long distance through routes to access given its start location which sits in the middle of Newcastle, a major UK Northern City. Walkers will be treated to a cosmopolitan experience prior to venturing into the quiet countryside and towards Northumberland National Park.[/dropcap]

As with any long distance path, or countryside pursuit it’s always advisable to use public transport where possible to limit your carbon footprint, but also to reduce the worry of having to leave your personal car, or a hire car in an unknown city.

Train is the best way to reach the start of the walk, with public transport via the UKs train network being available from most major UK Airports.
