AONB Visitor Guide to be launched at North Tourism Fair

This year’s Northumberland Coast AONB Visitor Guide will once again be available at the North Tourism Fair at Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre in Alnwick on Tuesday 17th March. It is the ninth edition of this popular publication and this year features an impressive image of Dunstanburgh Castle on its front cover, taken by local photographer Gavin Duthie.

The guide is designed to be used once visitors are here. It is full of information, great photos and aims to help visitors make the most of their stay whilst encouraging them to help conserve this unique landscape. This year, we have included an extra 16 page pull out - Drive Less, See More - to help visitors get around the Northumberland Coast without a car.

We strongly encourage small business and attractions to come along next Tuesday to pick up copies of the Guide, ready for the year ahead. We have printed 50,000 copies to meet demand. There will also be other AONB leaflets to collect and a chance to chat with the staff team.

Catherine Gray from the Northumberland Coast AONB Partnership said: “This well-received guide is always very popular. It was redesigned last year by Offstone Publishing; it’s now a handy A4 size, but still retains all the essential information. It’s a must-have for visitors to the AONB”.

The Guide is distributed through A-ha Distribution. If you wish to be added to their mailing list, then please contact them on 0191 267 1220 or e-mail: [email protected] You can also collect copies from Visitor Information Centres or by contacting the AONB office on 01670 622 644.
