Before You Go

Hare Hill in Cumbria is the tallest remaining stretch of Hadrian's Wall, standing up to three metres high. It probably survived because it was later built into the wall of a medieval structure. In the 19th century it was substantially rebuilt, using Roman masonry which was probably retrieved from the surrounding area.

Before You Go

Access: Parts of the site are uneven and can become muddy.

Parking: The closest car park available is at Lanercost Priory, roughly a 30 minute walk away.

Please be Aware: the postcodes provided are for the next nearest possible location.

Follow the Birdoswald Roman Trail. Hare Hill is part of this route which takes you along some of the most beautiful and imposing sections of Hadrian's Wall. Café, toilet facilities and the Birdoswald Farmhouse, our group accommodation, can be found at nearby Birdoswald Roman Fort.
