Walks For

Englishmen

Spread over the hills and valleys at the very top of England, but right in the centre of Britain, Northumberland National Park has unspoiled treasures awaiting your discovery. Ancient pre-history and the rare red squirrel exist alongside traditional lifestyles with a thriving culture.

There are distinct characteristics within the landscape of the National Park. A view over the National ParkTo the north there are the breathtaking rolling moors and grasslands of the Cheviot Hills, with their ancient hillforts and pure rivers. In the centre is the Upper Coquet Valley with the landmark Simonside Hills and the beautiful villages of Harbottle and Holystone. To the west are the valleys of the North Tyne and Redesdale, wild, inspiring and once home of the Border Reivers and still inhabited by red squirrels. In the south is the iconic ridge of the Whin Sill with Hadrian's Wall striding along its crest.

There are so many ways of experiencing the special qualities of the National Park. Sample local produce from one of the Farmers' Markets, walk in the footsteps of the Romans on a National Trail, climb the crags and cycle the byways, and join in with the music and dancing at a local show.
