Hadrian's Wall Path runs through a varied and inspiring landscape ranging from the tranquility of the Solway estuary to the rugged uplands of the central section of the Wall. It is rich in archaeology, wildlife and geological interest. Yet the visitor's experience of even the most magical places can be marred if you don't know where to get a cold drink on a hot day or you can't find a hearty meal in the evening after a long day walking the National Trail - and even worse if you can't find a place to withdraw cash to pay for these!
This guide will greatly help walkers and visitor to find these essential services, and so help you enjoy Hadrian's Wall Path to the full.
