YHA Hadrian's Wall

YHA Hadrian's Wall

YHA Hadrian’s Wall at The Sill will combine a superb 86 bed Youth Hostel with all the facilities you’ve come to expect from YHA including a self-catering kitchen and classrooms for our families, individuals, school trips and youth groups to use.

The Landscape Discovery Centre will include inspiring exhibition space plus a shop and café with a large terrace which is perfect for admiring the spectacular views. Outside there will be innovative spaces designed specifically for outdoor learning, music and theatre, or to just sit and soak up the surroundings.

Inspired by The Great Whin Sill, a nearby geographical feature, the building will complement and reflect the landscape with dry stone walls, glass and timber – you’ll even be able to walk on the green roof! Renewable energy will be used throughout the facility.

Northumberland is renowned for its fascinating history and scenic beauty which is why we’re keen to invest in the area.

The new Youth Hostel is just a few hundred metres from the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site and a short walk from Sycamore Gap and the Roman fort at Vindolanda. It promises to be an excellent base for exploring the whole of Northumberland National Park.
