Northumberland must-see attraction is Hadrian's Wall, a World Heritage Site that marked the northwest frontier of the Roman Empire and runs for around 70 miles from east to west. The remains of the wall can be followed on foot, bike and by bus, and there are Roman forts and archaeological sites, plus plenty of pubs and restaurants for weary travellers!
Hadrian's Wall lies within the stunning Northumberland National Park, which has been described as the most tranquil place in the UK. See for yourself by exploring some of the 700 miles of footpaths, exploring the landscapes and visiting the small villages set throughout.
The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is an important early centre of Christianity that lies just off the coast of Northumberland and is only accessible by causeway at low tide. Today the magnificent castle and remains of the priory are popular attractions, and the island is a great place to spot wildlife, with grey seals and rare birds among its most notable sights.
The Northumberland Coast runs for around 100 miles and is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the Northumberland Coast Path runs along much of the coast and offers many incredible views.
Bamburgh is an award-winning beach with clear waters and miles of lush golden sands. The imposing Bamburgh Castle soars high above the village and can be visited throughout the year, and the Grace Darling Museum digs deep into the history of the area.
