The Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum is the official start point and a worthwhile and comprehensive museum which will get you into the swing of things. The path follows the River Tyne for most of this section and gives a real insight into the industrial history of Newcastle and the ongoing regeneration of this vibrant city.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
