Northumberland – Officially the Best Place to Visit

Last year, Northumberland was voted the ‘Best UK Holiday County/ Destination’ in the 2018 British Travel Awards.

Now, we can celebrate, boast and gloat with absolutely no qualms (we do, of course, still remain modest in our victory…).

Now that Northumberland is officially the best, we want to show you the best of Northumberland. Where to see Northumberland’s richest heritage, its most peaceful walking trails, most fascinating wildlife, and most beautiful accommodation. Its magnificent castles, awe-inspiring coastline, romantic gardens, accessible routes and transport… the list could go on forever.
