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.
Northumberland offers its guests an exciting and enchanting world. For walkers and cyclists, the uplands and moorlands are breathtaking while Hamsterley Forest provides wild and mysterious walks leading to England's largest waterfall, High Force. In the market town of Hexham, visitors can explore the many local amenities while admiring the dominating majestic abbey.
For those that enjoy history, Raby castle, Beamish Museum, Housestead Roman Fort Museum and the old Roman Site Vindolanda at Corstopitum, are all easy accessible. The quaint little village of Corbridge attracts visitors with its specialist shops, crafts and tea rooms.
Newcastle is renowned for its vibrancy, with shops galore, culture and awe-inspiring architecture, such as Gateshead Millennium Bridge.
