A whole new side of Northumberland can best be enjoyed in the Winter; home to Europe’s largest International Dark Sky Park, it is the ideal place to discover the night skies. Billions of shimmering stars, a plethora of planets, dazzling meteor showers and the glow of galaxies like Andromeda can all be seen. Travel around the Dark Sky Park, spanning Northumberland National Park and Kielder Water & Forest Park, visiting Dark Sky Discovery Sites that provide an ideal location for star-spotting, or see the spectacular Northern Lights on the coast.
To fill your days explore seaside towns and rural villages, especially around Christmas, when local producers show off the quality of their wares at festive markets and fairs throughout the county.
