Northumberland

NORTHUMBERLAND

Located in the northernmost part of England and knocking on Scotland’s door, the county of Northumberland boasts some of the wildest and beautiful countryside in the UK. Steeped in history, the county is littered with remnants of its rich history. However, if you prefer to enjoy your break with your feet firmly planted in the 21st Century, then there are plenty of contemporary attractions for visitors of all ages.

Hadrian’s Wall

Anyone with more than a passing interest in history ought to take a trip to Hadrian’s Wall at least once. This Bucket List destination was originally built as a divide between England and Scotland. However, the wall itself has given rise to other historical attractions, such as Poltross Burns milecastle – one of the few remaining milecastles to be found along the Wall itself. In nearby Carrawburgh, you’ll find one of the oldest examples of Roman civilisation at the Temple of Mithras.

Northumberland National Park – By Day and By Night

Northumberland National Park is one of the most expansive national parks in the UK and, by night, becomes the largest Dark Sky Park in Europe. With almost no light pollution, stargazers are offered unparalleled views of the cosmos and there are a number of nocturnal events taking place throughout the year. By day, the park is a haven for walkers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts.

From Fine Dining to Fish and Chips

When it comes to food, the county of Northumberland boasts some of the best cuisine in the land. Romantically-inclined couples will love the dramatic scenery and exquisite dishes served up at Langley Castle. However, you can’t travel to Northumberland and not try the fish and chips – be sure to visit Neptune in Seahouses, voted one of the best fish and chip restaurants in the UK.
