Northumberland

Golden sandy beaches, rolling hills, rugged moorland and stunning views

Welcome to Northumberland!

Northumberland is a magical place filled with unspoilt, golden sandy beaches, rolling hills, ancient castles, friendly little market towns and a cultural heritage all of its own. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city in the most sparsely populated county in England.

Northumberland has something for everyone, whether it’s days on the beach or discovering the countryside. Just don’t forget to look to the heavens – Northumberland is home to Europe’s largest area of protected night sky which makes it perfect for stargazing. Northumberland is also a great place for fine food. The sea delivers delicious seafood and fish but you won’t be stuck for choice when it comes to meat, game and fantastic vegetarian dishes either. The county is full of lovely little market towns so you’ll never be stuck for somewhere to shop, so check out our shopping guide. Northumberland is also literally crammed with arts and culture so have read of our recommendations.
