Northumberland

Northumberland is one of the most beautiful places to visit in all of England; picturesque market towns and quaint rural villages are surrounded by stunning countryside and magnificent coastlines.

As well as its outstanding natural beauty, Northumberland is rich in history and heritage. The incredible Roman Wall, built by the Emperor Hadrian in A.D. 122, winds its way across the county, the remains of its forts and mile castles offering glorious views across the Northumberland landscape. Grand stately homes with lovingly tended gardens can be found all over the Northumbrian countryside and the county is home to more castles than any other in England.

Besides majestic landscapes and captivating historical sites, Northumberland’s greatest attraction is its people: always friendly and welcoming, the people of Northumberland have a passion for great food and drink and a pride in their wonderful home, which they are always happy to share with guests.
