"The geographic centre of Britain"
The pretty, small town of Haltwhistle is just south of Northumberland National Park. It claims to be the geographic centre of Britain, and is certainly a great location from which to explore Hadrian’s Wall.
In Haltwhistle, you will find a charming family-friendly watch and clock museum. Based on the children’s book ‘Mr George the Clock Man’ there are displays of antique clocks. Worth a second glance.
Just outside of the town you can visit the Roman Army Museum; Carvoran. A 3D film and three galleries packed with objects from the daily life of a Roman soldier. The museum is next to a section of Hadrian’s wall.
