Life’s a beach when you visit Northumberland. We have a staggering, 30 mile-long sweeping coastline with romantic castle ruins and hidden bays sitting along it, as well as summer holiday events, pop-up gin bars, music festivals and a myriad of other attractions to see you through summer.
Sunset boat trips along the River Tweed, wildlife spotting at The Farne Islands, SUP Boarding with a castle as your backdrop and canoeing along the River Coquet are just a few examples of some unmissable summer activities along the coast. Or, step into your walking boots and venture inland to discover a multitude of walking, cycling and sightseeing opportunities. Take a guided walk through the Northumberland National Park, uncover the rugged beauty of the North Pennines, or delve into the epic history surrounding Hadrian’s Wall.
Whether you want to be in the heart of all the action, or get away from the crowds and explore the barely-trodden areas of Northumberland, there are attractions, days out and events that suit your summer style.
