The Best Hikes in Britain: Hadrian’s Wall

I’m headed across the pond to Great Britain, and I’d like to do some hiking while I’m there. What are my best best for logging some trail time?

A:Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Romans built a wall running from coast to coast across the neck of northern England, just south of what was then the Empire’s northern frontier, near the present-day Scottish border. Large sections of the wall remain intact, and an 84-mile trail follows the old wall route, passing by old Roman fortifications as well as pasture, moor, and marshland along the way.
