At Footsteps in Northumberland, we offer guided walks in this remote and beautiful county in North East England. Footsteps will take you on a guided walk in the Cheviot Hills of the Northumberland National Park and along the Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its castles, golden beaches, amazing views and its busy traditional fishing villages. 

The countryside between the hills and the coast has great walking too, and there are many wonderful places to explore on a Footsteps guided walk. Every walk is its own mini-adventure and in Northumberland it’s also a journey of discovery into the rich human history of the England and Scottish Border country.

There is always something here to capture your imagination; there is amazing wildlife to be seen, the Northumberland Coast is home to thousands of birds in each and every season of the year.  Up on the Cheviot Hills the heather glows purple in July and August and its scent fills the air evocatively. Mighty castles dominate distant horizons in a rich historical landscape just waiting to be discovered and what better way to do that, than on a Footsteps guided walk.

You can find out everything about who we are and what we do at Footsteps in Northumberland on our website. We look forward to meeting and walking with you soon on a Footsteps guided walk.

Walk to St Cuthberts Cave

KarenT535, Houston, Texas
Beautiful walk, low level through farmland, woodland and a little bit of moorland. Fantastic views and obviously visiting the cave, and other sandstone crags. Patrick is a great guide and was happy to do this walk with me at very short notice. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to do some walking trips in Northumberland.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Many thanks for your review of our Footsteps walk to St. Cuthbert's Cave. I learned more about the geology of the sandstone from you, all useful information for future walks. P

Above and beyond expectations - absolute perfection!

Anila D,
Patrick Norris is a brilliant tour guide who catered to our needs from the very beginning, with an extremely personalised service. From explaining how to get to the location, to imparting his wealth of knowledge during the walks, to the very end when we had tea, cakes and another site which I had personally asked to see, which was not part of the tour but for which Patrick happily catered. Overall, the walking experience was awe-inspiring from start to finish and I could not have asked for a more perfect day. And, I completely recommend Patrick and the Footsteps Northumberland - absolute 1st class service and everything you would want on your day out. Patrick - if you're reading this, thank you!!! It was a truly memorable day for me and my friend. Best, Anila.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Thanks Anila that's a lovely review and I look forward to walking with you both again; it was an excellent day to be out and about in the Northumberland countryside. P

Patrick is so knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna, with some great historical facts too. Always picks an interesting and stunning route in Northumberland. And as its Northumberland he's spoilt for choice for beautiful countryside or amazing coastline walks. I've been on a few walks but the latest one was the wonderful Pilgrams way to Lindisfarne at low tide.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Hi Heather, many thanks for your review, it is appreciated and I hope to walk with you again soon. Lindisfarne and the Pilgrim's Way remains a popular walk right through the Autumn and Winter, although we're wearing wellies and woolly socks now to keep our feet warm.

Follow the pilgrims route to Holy Island

Roger B,
A very memorable walk. Patrick is an excellent and friendly guide. I have never walked 3 miles in bare feet - and this was a joy! Thoroughly recommend.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Hi Roger, many thanks for your review it is very much appreciated to read such positive comments about who we are and what we do. We're wearing our wellies now, the temperature has dropped right away and we'll not be walking barefoot again until next Summer.

A fantastic experience

I had a wonderful time completing a half day walk along the Bamburgh coast with Patrick. It was a beautiful route and Patrick is a very knowledgeable guide with a wealth of information on wildlife, history and geology. I will definitely be re booking as soon as I can.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Thank you the review of your Footsteps guided walk along the wilder side of the Bamburgh Coast in Northumberland. It's a coast with plenty of hidden secrets and as the Autumn migration gathers pace, the bird numbers in Budle Bay begin to increase adding an extra dimension to this remarkable walk.
