Northern England region

The northerly county of Northumberland is a hidden gem of totally unspoilt countryside and wonderful long stretches of pristine sandy beaches. If you want to stretch your legs and breathe in clean country air this is the place for you, with miles of wide open spaces and magnificent views. The county has three distinct sub regions; a coastline stretching some forty miles with quiet sandy beaches and pretty coastal harbour villages. Inland visitors will find dramatic rolling moorland and forests, much of which is National Park and to the south of the region is the famous Hadrian's Wall which runs coast to coast and is now a World Heritage Site. Apart from Northumberland's natural assets the county is steeped in history and has had a turbulent past which is characterised by more than its fair share of castles and ancient hill forts, some of which were built to repel Viking invaders. It was also the scene of the border wars and conflicts between the English and Scots in the 14th-16th century.

Berwick-Upon-Tweed

Berwick Upon Tweed is situated on the east coast close to the mouth of the river Tweed. Being just 10 miles from the border with Scotland this town has seen a turbulent past and the impressive defence ramparts and barrack buildings are just some of the signs this town wasn't always so peaceful! The impressive historic walls are thought to be some of the oldest in Europe, built in 1558 by Edward II. The two sets of walls take around 45 minutes to walk and are a great introduction to the stunning scenery and surrounding countryside and coastline. The town has much to offer visitors with a good selection of interesting shops, restaurants and an excellent leisure centre with sporting facilities. Walking along the coast is one of the most popular activities; this stretch of coastline is full of seabirds and large colonies of grey seals. The Berwickshire Coast Path starts in the town and heads north passing though Burnmouth and Eyemouth before finishing in St Abbs Head on the Scottish Border. The Northumberland Coast Path ends in the town so it's easy to pick up the path from the railway station and walk south to Fenwick and onto other popular towns such as Seahouses and Craster. Fine views can be enjoyed right along the coastline with Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle dominating much of the skyline. Inland the isolated and stunning countryside around the Cheviot Hills offer a great range of walks within the National Park – a delight for any walking enthusiast. Berwick Upon Tweed is an excellent base from which to enjoy all this and a lot more right along the Northumbrian Coastline.
