Where is the Wall? Where is a good viewpoint of Hadrian’s Wall? Can you drive up to Hadrian’s Wall? The closest section of Hadrian’s Wall is about one mile north of the site as the crow flies. I would suggest visiting Steel Rigg, Cawfields or if you've purchased a ticket to the Roman Army Museum, you are right next to Walltown Crags which is one of the highest standing sections of Hadrian’s Wall. At Banks, to the west of Birdoswald the Wall is very close to the road.
