Visitor centre currently closed to the public
Following the press conference held on Friday 20 March 2020 our visitor centre at Walltown will be closed to the public from 4pm Friday 20 March until further notice. We will be keeping toilet facilities open at Walltown and at other sites in the Park to provide essential services for people who want access to the countryside.
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.
