Summer is here, so you can finally dust off your shorts and skirts from the back of your wardrobe in anticipation of the sun hopefully making an appearance. There’s no better place to enjoy sunny strolls, attend fantastic events and spend summer evenings admiring the sunset than in Northumberland.

Life’s a beach when you visit Northumberland, as 30 miles of sweeping beaches and designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty make up the coastline. Romantic castle ruins and hidden bays all sit along Northumberland’s coastline, and summer is the perfect time to get your sunnies and sandals on and explore.

Pull on your walking boots and wander inland and 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. Just scroll down for some midsummer motivation.
