DISCOVER THE RUGGED COASTLINE OF THE PEMBROKESHIRE COAST PATH
The Hadrian’s Wall Path, although being up there as one of the most popular walking routes in the UK also manages to be surprisingly quiet. If walking from East to West you will start from the city of the port city of Newcastle, famous for its industrial past, and now a thriving commercial hub in the North.
Bars, cafes and accommodation aplenty. A far cry from the landscapes which will be underfoot in a few days time. As you work your way through the cities, walking along the River Tyne, you will leave its banks before working your way up to higher ground, and towards the Old Military Road.
This old Roman road will start to slowly take you towards the central features of the Hadrian’s Wall Path, from Chollerford to Carlisle.
This middle section defines the walk itself with amble opportunities for sightseeing, simply sublime views, and of course an excellent choice of places to eat, drink and rest your head.
The historic city of Carlisle will make a great stopping point for some, but others who want to enjoy the entirety of the walk will move towards Bowness-on-Solway at the end of the walk.
This quaint little Cumbrian village sits overlooking a Nature Reserve, and its peaceful atmosphere is a distinct contrast to the busy start of your walk.
"I would argue that this is the finest stretch of coastline in the United Kingdom”
