Join Head Ranger Paget Lazzari,  for an easy walk around the  Walltown Country Park and then head up to Hadrian’s Wall to look at the fantastic landscape of Northumberland National Park.

This is an easy walk suitable for most walkers, but there are some short ascents and descents.

To avoid disappointment we recommend you book your tickets in advance online as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The booking for the event will close before the event takes place, often on the afternoon of the last working day prior to the event.  There may still be tickets available; unless this event shows either that booking is essential or that tickets are “sold out” you may still be able to attend simply by turning up on the day.  However, do note that places are always allocated on a first come first served basis because of number restrictions.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks.  Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk.
