Beautiful spot for a picnic near Hadrian's Wall
Building refurbishment work is about to start at our visitor centre at Walltown. We hope to be re-open by mid- August 2019. Whilst the work is ongoing, we will do our utmost to keep the toilet facilities open to the public.
It’s 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.
Walltown features woodland, meadows, wildlife lakes car parking, toilets and firm paths. Pleasant circular walks can be enjoyed with great views all around.
