  • Hadrian's Wall Bus to Carlisle

    by Reevo39 Written Dec 28, 2005

    This is a great bus trip to do. It takes you along the route of Hadrian's Wall which is fantastic scenery. It goes all the way from Newcastle bus station to Carlisle & sometimes on to Bowness on Solway.

    The best one to get is one with a commentary - a guide gives all the history & anecdotes of the area & even has roman shoes & helmets to try on!
    It stops at all the main Roman sites such as Housesteads & Vindolanda so is good for day trips as well as those walking the national trial along Hadrians Wall.

    A bargain at £6 for adults! and you can hop on & off to visit the various sites as well.

  • Public transport in Northumberland

    by stephenshephard Written Oct 28, 2003

    Northumberland is England's most rural county and it is not very well served by public transport. Most places are only accessible by bus, the main company being Arriva.

    Even some of the larger towns in the southeast do not have railway stations. The main stations in the County are at Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnmouth, Morpeth, Cramlington, Corbridge and Hexham.

    Use a Car

    Although it is possible to arrive in Northumberland by public transport and to get around, for those on an extended visit it is probably best to use the car.
