Example Itinerary

Arrive in Walsend
Your walk will start in Bowness-on-Solway if walking from West to East. Bowness lies in the Solway Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a popular place to watch wildlife with limited but excellent accommodation
Walk to Carlisle | 14 miles / 22.5 km
You will mark the start of the walk by departing from the Segedunum Roman Fort, and following the road away from the coast towards Burgh by Sands and towards Carlisle. You will journey through the salt marshes of Solway Firth before following the Wall and the banks of the River Eden into Carlisle. Carlisle is a small but vibrant city, with lots of excellent accommodation options and restaurants.
Walk to Banks | 13 miles / 21 km
This easy section of the route takes you out of Carlisle. Take time to explore the city a little before you walk, and acquaint yourself with the ancient walls and cathedral. Walking away from the city will take you along the River Eden, where your accommodation will be either in Walton or Banks.
Walk to Twice Brewed | 13 miles / 21 km
You will start to gain height, and reach lanercost Priority, the roman fortress of Birdoswald, and meander through the pretty village of Gilsland. You will continue your jam packed day of history by passing ruins of Magnis Forts and Great Chesters before slogging up Cawfields Crags with impressive views before descending down to Twice Brewed.
Walk to Chollerford | 12.5 miles / 20 km
The hilliest section of behind you, almost. First you need to walk over Peel Crags and Highshield Crags. Make sure to visit Housteads Roman fort, owned by the National Trust. You will enjoy views for much of the day, with the wall naturally being built on higher ground so to take advantage of the wild terrain.
Walk to Heddon-on-the-Wall | 15.5 miles / 25 km
The final section is steady and on low ground. Remains are visable but not quite to the extent as the middle section. You will spend much of the day walking along the river, as the city of Newcastle builds up around you. Eventually you will arrive in Newcastle, and finish the route at Wallsend.

"Matt did a great job in finding the right tours/distances by suggesting B&B along the trail. He booked (and prepaid) our accommodation in B&Bs and hotels. All B&Bs were neat and cosy, easy to find and nicely located."

"All I had to do was turn up on the day and start walking, all the B&Bs Matt chose were excellent"
