What's open in Northumberland

Plan ahead if you're considering a visit to Northumberland as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Our astounding county offers an endless list of outdoor adventures; blooming gardens, ancient excavation sites, enchanting castle grounds, miles of untrodden beaches and seemingly undiscovered countryside landscapes are on our doorstep. As one of the least-populated counties in England (that homes more sheep than people!) there is nowhere better to get away from the crowds.

Please help protect our residents, businesses, visitors and yourselves by making sure you ‘Know before you Go’. You can do this by:

  • Following us on social media for up to date information and travel inspiration using the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram icons at the bottom of this newsletter.

Please see the following areas and attractions below for their current guidance:









We're Good to GoKeep an eye on business websites and social media pages for the ‘We’re Good to Go’ logo. This scheme, created by VisitEngland, confirms that businesses are following Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines. It lets you know that the accommodation or attraction you plan on visiting has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing, allowing your visit to be worry-free.

Northumberland needs your support now more than ever, so please respect our outstanding county, follow the Country Code and abide by government guidelines when you visit.
