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.

Access information

The majority of our guided walks take place off road and on foot. I acknowledge the advances in technology relating to off-road pedestrian vehicles, so do get in touch if you have any questions around access to the Northumberland countryside.

Road directions

You will be provided with information about where we start and end our Footsteps guided walks. Most walks are circular, some are linear and we use public transport sometimes to get us to the start of a walk and back to where we started. 

Public transport

The main bus service providers are the Arriva X18 and X15, the Travelsure 418 and various services operated by Borders Busses along the Border.

Lovely walk

Yachtjudge, Lymington, Hampshire,England
Lovely walk on Holy Island. Brilliant descriptions of the various flora and fauna on Lindisfarne - incredible orchids. The history or the island, the village and the church areal interesting. I could have happily spent more time there but causeway timings meant we had to leave. Excellent cafe for lunch.

Just heavenly

This coastline is just stunning. Clean, views to die for, more ancient monuments and natural beauty than you can shake a stick at. It really is just the most peaceful , mind healing relaxing place. Everyone needs to visit!

We all had a fantastic day, walking to, and back from Lindisfarne. Patrick, you made the day so special. Your knowledge of the historic milestones in this area-top class. The light, scenery and wildlife were also incredible-thanks again Steve and family

Well worthwhile walk

antonyb84, Chesterfield, United Kingdom
We embarked on this walk on a damp Monday along with 5 other walkers. We were a good mix of ages with teenagers and seniors. Our guide Patrick was first rate. Friendly and knowledgeable he paced the walk perfectly to fit the mixed group. Patrick avoided the muddier parts of the causeway and the water was warm and pleasant underfoot. It took us about 90 minutes to get to the island with many interesting stops on the way where Patrick would point out some point of interest or the other. We only had a little time on the island as ours was an early afternoon tide, but Patrick tailored our time on the island perfectly to fit the time available. The walk back took about 60 minutes. We thoroughly enjoyed this walk even if the weather was a bit miserable. Definitely glad we did this walk and glad we chose Footsteps. Highly recommended.

Very interestering and scenic walk in the Breamish Valley around Ingram

johnsonrosemary107, County Durham, United Kingdom
Patrick led us on a walk starting close to the village of Ingram and headed across the moors towards Chesters and then onto Little Dodd. He pointed out the historic forts and settlements along the way as well his knowledge of the landscape and features of the area. His expertise and conversation made it very worthwhile experience in such beautiful surroundings. Many Thanks. Martyn
