Overview

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.

Just the right balance - informative, helpful and a pleasure to be with!

Patrick was the perfect person for out two day guided walks on part of the Northumberland coastal path last week. Before we had even flown in from Switzerland, he was an enormous help to me in planning the week. Nothing was too much trouble and his knowledge of the area, its history and local attractions were just what we were looking for. Even though my Swiss friends' ability to speak English was a little limited, we all enjoyed our time spent with Patrick and have come away knowing more about the legends, history and wildlife in the area than we hoped for. Thanks for a great two days and hope to be back discovering more of Northumberland with you on a future occasion.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Many thanks for your review. I enjoyed walking with you all along the wild and windy Northumberland Coast; it was spectacular to say the least and I hope to walk with you again on your next visit.

Excellent 2 days in the Cheviot Hills


slorsborn1, Wokingham, United Kingdom
Signed up for the 2 day Hill Skills course with Patrick. Was a great 2 days. Patrick is patient, very knowledgeable about the area and a great teacher. I ended the course with much more confidence in my fitness abilities and being able to get up those steep hills but also being able to navigate my way round the countryside. I will definitely be recommending Patrick to people not only for this course but also for his walking tours which I will be perusing as well. I look forward to more adventures in Northumberland.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Many thanks for your review of the Hill Skills course, it's very much appreciated. It was great to work with you and I look forward to walking with you on your next visit to Northumberland; I'll give you the map!

Wonderful walk with a knowledgeable and friendly guide


Fiona G,
We had a wonderful day walking the Pilgrims' Way then exploring Lindisfarne with our friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable guide. Even though we've visited Lindisfarne several times before we still learnt lots we hadn't known before. The walk across the Pilgrims' Way was spectacular. The skies and sense of space were amazing. The only sound was birdsong, with the occasional cry from the seals hauled up on the sandbanks. We highly recommend Footsteps for all your walks in this part of Northumberland.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Hi, many thanks for your review; the Pilgrim's Way to Holy Island on a fine sunny day in Spring is hard to beat and the weather in Northumberland for you this week has been perfect. I look forward to walking with you again on your next visit.

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
