About YHA The Sill at Hadrian's Wall

The Sill Landscape Discovery Centre

Explore Northumberland’s fascinating history from our brand new state-of-the-art location – YHA The Sill at Hadrian’s Wall. The Sill is an exciting £14.8 million initiative of international importance, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Northumberland National Park's project will create a National Landscape Discovery Centre and partners with YHA to create a top attraction for groups learning about the area. Relax in our contemporary social areas, use our meeting room for studying, or enjoy a tasty group meal from our stylish café. Not to mention the fact that we're surrounded by epic scenery!

The hostel sits just a stone’s throw from Hadrian’s Wall itself, making it perfect for history buffs and school trips. We’re super secure and rooms can only be accessed by Salto key card, so you can sleep sound in our modern surroundings.

Whether you’re visiting the atmospheric Sycamore Gap or the famous Roman fort at Vindolanda, we’re an excellent base for exploring the unique landscape of the Northumberland National Park. Further afield is the Roman Army Museum; a dramatic tribute to Rome’s extraordinary legacy. Hadrian’s Wall itself will keep walking groups entertained for days, boasting rugged terrain and breathtaking landscapes on both sides.

YHA The Sill lounge

Overall this was a brilliant experience for our children who were able to stay safely in comfort in what must be the best place to learn about The Romans in Britain. With Vindolanda on the doorstep and the ability to simply walk out of the door and onto the most iconic section of Hadrian's Wall, it's all about location. YHA staff were brilliant at every stage...I have already booked for next year.
