Exploring Hadrian's Wall with Go North East
Our AD122 Hadrian’s Wall Country Bus runs every year from Easter Weekend until around the end of September each year, but it’s still possible to explore parts of Hadrian’s Wall all year round.
The 185 service runs daily on Monday to Saturdays with three return journeys a day from Haltwhistle Rail Station and Market Place to the Roman Army Museum, Walltown, Gilsland and Birdoswald Roman Fort.
The 680 also runs on Mondays to Saturdays with a regular service from Hexham Bus Station to Bellingham via Chollerford, which is a 10 minute walk from Chesters Roman Fort.
Our AD122 Hadrian’s Wall Country Bus will return on Friday 19th April 2019 and timetable details will be published in mid-January 2019.
Places to explore
Chesters Roman Fort
Nestled in a riverside location, it’s not hard to see why Chesters was a good spot for the Romans to set up a base. The fort boasts one of the best Roman bathhouses you can see in Britain. Catch the 680 to Chollerford Bridge and it's a 5-10 min walk.
Roman Army Museum, Walltown
An extensive museum which gives the whole family a fantastic introduction to the Roman Army and Hadrian’s Wall. Be transported back 2000 years when you put on your 3D glasses to watch the award winning Eagles Eye film! Catch the 185 to the Museum.
This is one of the finest places to see Hadrian’s Wall, where it snakes and dives through dramatic countryside along the crags of the Whin Sill. Catch the 185 to Walltown Car Park.
Birdoswald Roman Fort
Birdoswald Roman Fort is the perfect place to see the longest continuous remaining stretch of the magnificent World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall. Explore the extensive remains of the Roman fort and discover interactive displays. Catch the 185.
