Discover Northumberland

Discover Northumberland

Northumberland is known for breath-taking scenery; from its vast stretches of well-preserved sandy beaches, to a higher concentration of castles than anywhere else in the UK, to its magnificent National Park and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

You will find Heritage site Hadrian’s Wall, the best-preserved Roman monument in Britain to the north; picturesque scenery of the North Pennines to the south and seemingly-endless coast to the east. The heritage of the county is omnipresent, from its imposing castles, to ancient fortresses and abbeys. Northumberland also makes for a fantastic coastal adventure, with an unlimited supply of silky smooth beaches and peaceful fishing villages. For the adventurous traveller, get to grips with the fascinating cycle tracks available.
