The world-famous Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland, England, is just over a hundred kilometres long. In the second century, the Romans started building this massive defensive fortification. Forts along the wall, such as the ruined fort Vindolanda, housed the soldiers who were supposed to protect the Roman province in North East England from the so-called Barbarians. Vindolanda is a worth-seeing Roman site. Located near the village of Bardon Mill, just four kilometres south of Once Brewed, you can visit the excavated remains of the fort; a full-size replica section of Hadrian's Wall; and the Chesterholm Museum, which displays items from the site.

One of the most dramatic parts of the wall can be found near Once Brewed, which is a small settlement that is mostly visited by tourists visiting Hadrian's Wall. Around six kilometres southeast of Once Brewed is the village of Haltwhistle. If you come from Newcastle upon Tyne by train, this is the last railway station before you have to take a bus to get to Once Brewed. The train ride on the Northern Rail takes around one hour. The bus takes additional twenty minutes. Taking a car is more comfortable and more flexible to explore the nature and the sights of North East England. The unspoilt nature here is also perfect to relax and to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. The region is also popular with walkers of the well-known Pennine Way, Britain's first national trail.
