Hadrian`s Wall is the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England.The weather was not kind to us the day we visited but we still enjoyed rome in along the walls.
It ran from the banks of the River Tyne near the North Sea and the Solway Firth on the Irish Sea.A lot of the wall still stands and can be walked along. The emperor Hadrian visited Britannia in AD 122 and ordered his generals to build a wall from the Tyne to the Solway, to prevent raiders from the north destroying the strategic Roman base at Corbridge, in Northumberland.
Sections of Hadrian's Wall remain along the route, though much has been dismantled over the years to use the stones for various nearby construction projects. Hadrian's Wall was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987.
