Alnwick

Explore some of the best stretches of Northumberland’s coast and countryside as well as iconic houses, castles and gardens with the National Trust. There’s always lots to see and do in every season.

Early in the year, see the landscape come back to life after winter on a spring walk along Hadrian’s Wall, or from April onwards, witness thousands of puffins and other seabirds return to nest on the Farne Islands.

Early June is the perfect time to visit Cragside. This huge estate bursts into colour as thousands of rhododendrons bloom. Summer is a great time to head to the beach too and the National Trust looks after some of Northumberland’s most gorgeous coastline. Enjoy the sandy shores of Newton and Embleton Links or pop over to Seaton Delaval Hall before heading for fish and chips by the sea.

As autumn emerges, red squirrels at Wallington begin to store food for the winter. Explore the colourful woodland and find the wildlife hide to see if you can catch a glimpse of the squirrels.

As the sun sets on a year in Northumberland, don’t forget to head up to Lindisfarne Castle. The views from the upper battery – whether of sunny days, stormy seascapes or beautiful sunsets - are unrivalled!
