The AD122 bus, which runs to Hexham and connects to buses between Newcastle and Carlisle, stops right outside our campsite gates.
This is a seasonal bus service, which operates daily from Good Friday until the end of September. It runs hourly for most of the day.
A range of fares and tickets are available and, when you buy a Hadrian’s Wall Country Bus ticket, all proceeds go directly to operate this invaluable AD122 bus service.
