Hadrian's Wall is the boundary built by the Romans between conquered England and unconquered Scotland and this Unesco World Heritage Site is amazing to visit. But it is quite long so where is the best place to visit Hadrian's Wall? Housesteads Roman Fort is a short detour from the M1 and is one of the best places to see Hadrian’s Wall intact. There's an excellent visitor centre and plenty of information. You really get a great impression of what it must have been like here in Roman times.
