Family Day Out: The Sill, Northumberland

We took a family trip to The Sill by Hadrian’s Wall on Saturday with a baby, a teenager, parents and grandparents.

It’s a beautiful looking building and the roof top garden is fantastic – freezing winds meant we dashed back inside after a few seconds so I’m looking forward to a return visit later.

It’s the perfect stop for a cuppa if you have been exploring the wall or you have a buggy and a wheelchair and you want to enjoy the views of the wall from the cafe or the roof.


There are some activities for children and a small gallery – it will be great to see how these develop in the future.

Keep an eye on their What’s On Page for some great activities and events in 2019.

Parking ranges from £2-£5 and I’ve been told the coffee is delicious – I’ll be popping back with a book when it warms up a bit.
