Over 2000 years of history lie across our staggering countryside landscapes. We hold the longest stretch of Hadrian’s Wall
, as well as some of the best-preserved historical sites. Northumberland is a rural county within England, our position on the edge of England has left an intriguing trail of history with the Scottish border and we have more spectacular castle
remains than any other county in the UK, from Warkworth
and Alnwick Castle
The only time you want your day to end in ruins is when you’re in Northumberland. From mighty, towering castles to romantically ruinous remains, over 70 castle sites are spread along our coastline, perched on our islands and sat in the hearts of our cobbled market towns.
