The unpredictable weather in the UK means we have to make the most of it when we’re treated to a fine dry day and even some sunshine.

Especially when it comes to the North East’s great outdoors – from picturesque coastal views to some of the world’s most ancient pathways.

With that in mind, a particular hike in Northumberland has been revealed as one of the "most beautiful" in Britain to explore this spring, according to the outdoor experts at Blacks.

You might have heard of Hadrian’s Wall Path but have you ever ventured along it during the warmer months of the year?

Why is Hadrian’s Wall Path among UK’s 'most beautiful' hikes?

This 84-mile trail follows the ancient Roman wall that once marked the northern frontier of the Roman Empire.

It offers “stunning views” of the Northumberland countryside and includes many historical landmarks, such as Roman forts.

Natalie Byrne, content marketing manager at Blacks commented: “The terrain on this route is varied, with some steep climbs and descents, but the path is generally well-maintained.

“The beauty of this walk is that there are several routes to choose from that vary in distance and difficulty.

“For those who crave a challenge the routes in the central section of the trail will prove the most exciting.”
