From the lush, green valleys and forests in the west, to the unspoilt, dune-lined beaches in the east, Northumberland is blessed with an irresistible mix of stunning scenery, fascinating historical sites, and unforgettable adventures.
The rural county of Northumberland is a short drive
from the vibrant and bustling city of Newcastle and the cathedral city of Durham.
Northumberland is a place of tranquillity, where you can walk in the footsteps of saints at Holy Island
, skim stones along 30 miles of unspoilt beaches
, stroll back in time 2,000 years along Hadrian’s Wall
, meet the local seals and puffins at the Farne Islands
, then sleep under a canopy of stars in our International Dark Skies Park
