Getting There

It is easy to get to Hadrian's Wall Path by public transport. Both ends (Carlisle in the west and Newcastle upon Tyne at the east) have inter-city rail links and National Express coach services.  Newcastle has an international airport with scheduled services to many UK and overseas destinations.

You can also use public transport to reach other points along the Trail. The AD122 Hadrian's Wall Country Bus is ideal for people wishing to walk part or all of the Hadrian's Wall Path; you can walk a section of the Path and take the bus back to your starting point. It operates in 2017 between Friday 14th April and Sunday 1st October connecting Hexham with Haltwhistle with all of the major Roman Wall sites in between.  Download the timetable.

The bus operator Go North East advise that the 2017 timetable will go onto its website in January.  

The 93/93A Stagecoach bus connects Carlisle with Bowness-on-Solway.  Download a timetable from bus operator Stagecoach Put No 93 in the 'download a timetable' field.   

The quickest way of getting from Newcastle to Segedunum Roman fort in Wallsend is by taking the Tyneside Metro.  Ticket machines in the stations so have change ready although they now accept credit/debit cards.  For Metro map and timetable go to

Car parking in Newcastle

By far the best place to leave your car at the east end of the Trail is at the long stay car parking facility at Newcastle International Airport.  Pre-booking is advisable for the best deals.  Book online at or call 0191 214 4341.

There is a 24 hour shuttle bus from the car park to the airport.  Then take the airport Metro to Wallsend changing at Monument station.  It really is very straight forward.  If you are staying overnight in Newcastle then the Metro map will be useful
