All the National Trust places in Northumberland have stuff going on all year round. There are things for families to do everywhere: this could be mud pie making for the little ones at Wallington or rock climbing adventures for teenagers at Hadrian’s Wall or Staward Gorge. We have a list of 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ so the younger ones can get cracking on ticking things off, like climbing a tree, rolling down a hill, catching a crab or building a den. Some of these things are free entry and free to do; many of them are free to join in with normal admission prices applying; and for some, there is a small additional charge. The events go on all year, with Easter Trails in spring, summer outdoors events, Hallowe’en spooky goings on in the autumn, and Father Christmas to visit or Christmas crafts in the winter.


For adults, we have guided walks, talks on the fascinating and sometimes hair-raising stories behind our places, outdoor and indoor music and theatre, sporting activity like park runs, craft and garden talks and workshops, pub nights, food markets and more.


On our website, there are downloadable walking trails from short rambles to serious hikes, with wildlife tips and historical insights; cycle trails from an 11 mile flat route on the old Haltwhistle - Alston railway line to 109 miles ticking off World Heritage Site Hadrian’s Wall, the Victorian splendour of Cragside and the Palladian beauty of Wallington; plus running routes and groups.
