HADRIAN'S WALL is the most important monument built by the Romans
in Britain. It is the best known frontier in the entire Roman Empire
and stands as a reminder of past glories of one of the world's greatest
civilisations. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1987, Hadrian's
Wall ranks alongside the Taj Mahal and other treasures of the great
wonders of the world.

towns and cities, a visit to Hadrian's Wall is a must for anyone
living in or visiting the North of England. Forts, museums and events
bring Roman history to life, walks lead you through spectacular
countryside. Time spent exploring this unique Roman heritage in
its ever changing setting will leave you with an unparalleled sense
of awe and wonder.
