My trusty Trailblazer Hadrian’s Wall guidebook describes it like this:

“Hadrian’s Wall is 135km (84 miles) of northern Europe’s largest surviving Roman monument, the 2nd century fortification built on the orders of Emperor Hadrian in AD122 and now a Unesco World Heritage Site. From Wallsend in north east England to Bowness in north west England, the path crosses the beautiful border country between England and Scotland.”

Hadrian’s Wall is a national trail which means it is very well waymarked with the acorn symbol and can be followed in either east-west or west-east across the north of England.
