  • Simply stunning. What a cracking walk along the historic Hadrian's Wall. Various routes from Steel Rigg Car Park are available. You can have a fairly leisurely stroll along the bottom path which takes you through farm land on a track or go the up and down route following the wall. Highly recommend the wall route as it is so adventurous and our kids loved it.
  • Well worth the effort to get to view this tree and its position in the landscape for real. It is most definitely an Iconic image and taking your own photographic image is so much more of a fulfilling achievement. It should certainly be in one of your top 100 places to visit in a life time.
