Whether its high octane adventure you’re looking for or a bolt hole to escape to for rest and relaxation, the Northumberland Coast is a perfect year-round getaway with lots to see and do for everyone. The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has miles of empty beaches including vast, safe expanses of sand – perfect for playing beach games and sandcastle building. There are secret coves ideal for rock pooling or enjoying the latest craze of coasteering!
Board a boat and head to the famous Farne Islands – home to hundreds of thousands of visiting sea birds each year, as well as one of the UK’s largest grey seal colonies. A short drive inland takes you into Northumberland’s dramatic interior including The Cheviot Hills, well laid out with walking and cycling trails to suit all levels of fitness and ages.
This coast has a wealth of world class attractions, open all year around including The Alnwick Garden, dramatic Bamburgh Castle and Alnwick Castle – home of Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. With the darkest skies in the country Northumberland is dramatic by day and by night?
