Northumberland National Park Authority maintain a Visitor Centre at Walltown Country Park

The Visitor Centre provides travellers with information on events, attractions and places to visit within the local area and regionally, along with a selection of snacks and hot and cold drinks.

The site is also great to explore Walltown with its tall crags around the large hollow left after quarrying. Here you can see how Hadrian’s Wall was built on the sheer north-facing edge of a great wave of volcanic rock. YOu can experience woodland, meadows, wildlife lakes, car parking and firm paths. The pleasant circular walks can be enjoyed by everyone, including those in wheelchairs and buggies.

Winter opening hours: Saturday / Sunday – 10am – 3pm
