Long distance walks in Northumberland

Remarkable walking routes
Pull on your walking trousers, step into your hiking boots and put your best foot forward in Northumberland. Our long walks range from challenging climbs to leisurely pub-hoppers and from seaside coast paths to winding, country routes.

Let us be your sole mate

From spectacular coastlines, to fairytale villages, vast forests and islands, Northumberland has so many hidden gems to explore on foot. Why not follow a tea merchant’s footsteps, discover the castles that line our coast, hike Hadrian’s Wall or uncover the ancient secrets of St Cuthbert on your next walking route.

Historical hikes and unbeatable views

Pick a National Park walking route and take in astounding views and almost incomprehensible historic sites. Hike along Hadrian's Wall, our very own rolling stones that represent thousands of years of history, including short walks from one Roman fort to the next, as well as longer walking routes including the 210 mile Ravenber Way Coast to Coast walk. From Alnwick to Bamburgh, to Holy Island, Seahouses and Rothbury, Northumberland offers some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery for you to enjoy.
