Many would agree that the western ‘end’ (or ‘start’) of Hadrian’s Wall, on the banks of the Solway Firth, has an idiosyncratic charm all its own — certainly different from Segedunum, over 80 miles away at the eastern end. The walk, or cycle into Carlisle also has its own curiosities, including gregarious Roger, the ‘sign-post man’, near the shore at Port Carlisle, who will include the distance to your home on his sign, if you want a souvenir picture of the walk to ‘post’ on social media.
There used to be a railway viaduct across the Firth to Scotland, near Bowness-on-Solway, but sadly it closed early in the 20th century. Today, you can catch a bus from Carlisle to Bowness, or let us take you there. At Go Hadrian’s Wall we have a range of vehicles, and provide flexible travel for any number of people, up to and including groups of 20 or more.
