Tales from Northumberland
If you want a taste of Northumberland while you’re relaxing at home, flick Robson Green's Tales From Northumberland on. During the series, he visits places that inspired him as a child, meets remarkable characters and explores our magical landscapes.

For Northumberland’s biggest fans

There are three series of Robson Green's Tales From Northumberland, the fantastic eight-parter that takes you through some of our most spectacular sites. Available to watch on Youtube, it is an excellent choice if you class yourself as one of the county’s biggest fans.

During the series Robson tries his hand at Britian's oldest, and toughest sports - Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling in the unspoilt Northumberland National Park. He visits the remote College Valley and spends a night wild-camping in the Cheviot Hills.

Along the way Robson discovers some of the region's greatest natural wonders. At Chillingham, he encounters one of the world's oldest breeds of cattle, which, he discovers, is also one of the most dangerous. He also found time to catch salmon in the River Tweed using the ancient method of net and coble boat and visits some of the county’s famous houses, including Seaton Delaval HallWallington House & Gardens and Cragside, home to Victorian inventor Lord Armstrong.
