Hadrianís Wall World Heritage Site is one of the UKís most sensitive and protected landscapes.
To help protect it, DO NOT stand or climb on Hadrianís Wall.
Ditches, mounds and other earthwork features are archaeologically sensitive and tend to be protected by a grass surface. To help reduce the wear and tear on the ground, please walk side by side and try to avoid walking in worn lines.
The ground surface that protects the archaeology is at its most sensitive during wet winter conditions, particularly between November and April. Alternative circular walks have been specifically designed so that walkers can still experience the stunning and dramatic scenery, whilst limiting their impact on archaeological remains.
Take special care not to damage, destroy or remove natural or historical features.
Large groups are not encouraged, in order to protect the archaeology of the site.
