After a few hours cycling, a stop at a Roman fort and a great pub lunch to set you up for the rest of the day is a pretty good way to discover Roman Britain, and the 174 mile Hadrian’s Cycleway is the route to choose.

Starting in Ravenglass and stretching the whole length of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site to South Shields, this route has amazing coastal views and a landscape steeped in history. As well as being a fantastic challenge, it's also a great way to experience the north of England passing through a UNESCO World Heritage Site, two National Parks, two cities and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Allow plenty of time so you can stop to soak up the culture and heritage at important Roman sites and museums along the way, and of course sample the great local food and drink.
