General Information

For 2024 our season will run from the 21st March until the 21st October.

No minimum or maximum number of stages. If a stage is particularly long, or if your chosen accommodation is off the normal route, there may be an excess charge.   If an accommodation is too far from the route, or if the length of a stage is so long that it crosses over where our vans overlap, we will not be able to provide the service.

Please be aware that Airbnb’s or similar accommodations cause us real problems, as there is usually no-one there when we come to drop off or pick up bags.  Therefore, unless the host guarantees that we will have easy access to either deliver or collect bags at any time between 9am and 4.30pm, we won’t be able to accept the booking.

Please pay close attention to our terms & conditions which are listed below.

Ditch the Bags and Enjoy the Walk.

Terms & Conditions

Bags MUST be ready for collection by 9am.

Bags will be delivered by 5pm, although in most cases it will be much earlier.

Bags should weigh no more than 20kg, with no extra items attached.

If extra items are attached they will be removed, labelled and charged as an extra bag, irrespective of size or weight.

We do enforce the weight limit for health and safety reasons and to protect our drivers.

If a bag is excessively heavy, our drivers may refuse to move it as it could expose them to injury.

We don’t average out bag weights so 2 medium bags are much better than 1 large bag and one small one.

Please do not tie anything extra to the outside of your bags.  These items make the bags difficult to lift and regularly become detached, leaving us with no idea to whom they belong.  This includes hats, pillows, boots, carrier bags and particularly walking poles.  If items are left tied to the outside of bags they will be removed, and a label tied onto them.  They will then be charged as an extra bag for that day regardless of size or weight.

We are not insured to carry valuable items such as laptops etc.  Your bags may be in the van under several other bags, so whilst we take every care with clients’ bags,  we take no responsibility if valuable or fragile items are damaged.

Leaving bottles of any type in your bags is a particularly bad idea.

A general rule of thumb is; if you wouldn’t check it into an aircraft hold, then don’t leave it to go in our vans.

Whilst we take every care with clients luggage, we will not accept liability for damage to baggage handles, wheels, stitching, zips, locks etc, caused by general handling.


Cancellations for any reason prior to the start of an itinerary will result in a full refund of any payment made.

Cancellation of any stage/stages once an itinerary has begun will not be refunded.

What Our Customer’s Say About Us

Hi Mark ,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for transporting our bags so efficiently this week. We can’t believe how easy it was to organise it with you and it made our walk  viable for us .

Thank you so much

Anna and Shaun

Anna Everett & Shaun Hacking - April 2024

Hello Mark

Thank you for a great reliable service moving my bag. It was lovely seeing my bag when I checked into each b and b or inn along Hadrian’s Wall path. We even saw a van on our last day into Newcastle! I will highly recommend your service.

Deborah Hansen - April 2024

The sight of our bag when we arrived at our stay for the night was fantastic, all provided by Mark and his team. We got exactly what we were promised, no pomp or fuss, just perfect service. I recommend this company to any person who needs their service, no need to check anywhere else, these guys are tops.

Howard Murphy - March 2024

Hi Mark,

Thanks for moving our bags over Easter. The children made a game of spotting your vans overtaking us.

91 miles completed in 6 days. The children wanted to do it all again when we’d finished.

Great service, on time every day. It makes all the difference to the walk knowing your bags are well looked after – and that you don’t have to carry them!

All the best for the coming season and I’ll 100% recommend you to any of our friends who want to do the walk.

Kind regards,

Hadrian’s Haul moved my backpack between the 28th March and 2nd April whilst I concentrated on tackling Hadrian’s Wall. There is absolutely no way I could have made it carrying my backpack, especially up and down the crags in the middle (most scenic) section. Completely reliable, bags were waiting for me every day when I arrived exhausted. It also acted as that motivation to keep going too rather than calling it a day when I’d had enough. There is no way I could have completed in 7 days otherwise. Very competitive pricing too,  I cannot understand why anyone would want the hassle of carrying their own bag. Very amenable to late changes to plans as things undoubtedly do change as you progress on your walk. Simple booking, I booked the day before.

Highly recommended 👌

Taryn Gronbeck - March 2024

Mark and his team were great in transferring my baggage from one hotel to another and all was seamless. Mark also provided honest and insightful information to assist me in planning my Hadrian’s Wall walk beforehand.

Definitely recommend.

Simon Hilton - March 2024

This company are quite simply faultless, transferring my luggage seamlessly, quickly over seven locations along the wall. Highly recommended.

James Atkinson - September 2023

They did the luggage transfer for us as we walked Hadrian’s Wall path. Absolutely no issues, our bags were always at our next place in good condition when we arrived. Gave us peace of mind and helped us enjoy our walk.

Cal Piston - September 2023

Perfection! At the very last minute – an error on our part – we failed to connect properly and make the reservations in advance – and they bent over to accommodate us! Originally we chose the company on Google that was the “sponsored” listing. Much to our great dismay, they refused to respond, but rather passed our information on to Hadrian’s Haul. We only discovered that when we called Hadrian’s and they were aware of our intinerary, having received it from the other firm. Our strong opinion to choose Handrian’s Haul first and always cannot be overstated. We had not one, not two – but THREE different walking adventures in three different countires – and these guys nailed it! Our bags were where they were supposed to be – when they were supposed to be there – and an outcome like that makes all the difference when you are sleeping in a different hotel or B&B every night, for three weeks running! A great business with a leader at the top who believes in what he’s doing, the difference it makes and how to get it done! Thank you for a stress-free adventure! – Marilyn Trumper-Samra, George Samra, Oscoda, MI USA

A fantastic service. Great communication from Mark at all times. Bags always there before us. No hassle or stress. The service made our week. Why would you go else where?

Su - July 2023

Mark and the team were excellent. Extremely responsive and helpful in setting up the baggage transfer. They made it incredibly easy and even suggested best practices/places for pickups/dropoffs.

We would absolutely use again! A+ recommended.

Ryan Measel - September 2022

Everything about using Hadrian’s Bags for my six days on the trail was effortless and efficient. Great communication and ease of booking led to a worry free week – my bag was always there in good time. Thanks Mark and the team!

Philip Lawson - April 2022

When embarking on a significant trek you need to be in a position to trust someone to transfer your baggage, and its precious belongings, from one destination to another. It is extremely gratifying to know that this will happen responsibly & effectively.
HWBT Limited certainly delivered for my trio & I would recommend their service to everyone.
Communication totally effective & simple.
Do not think we could have asked for more. Great job guys!

Colin Bird - April 2022

Really excellent service – absolutely perfect! Transfers were seamless, efficient and bags always waiting for us when we got to our B&B. Mark the owner was lovely and went way beyond what was expected – and did us a massive favour to help us out. Very much appreciated and worth every penny. Great value. No hesitation in recommending Hadrians Bag Service. Thank you Mark and team.

Jo Morris - April 2022

Faultless 1st class service. Couldn’t have done the Hadrian’s wall walk without them. Top stuff
