|The story of Northumberland - once part of the ancient Kingdom of Northumbria - has often been turbulent and difficult. Evidence of the past remains, in place names and ancient customs, in traditional street markets and in the ruins of medieval castles such as Bamburgh which guards the coast. The western uplands rise from the coastlands.
Here where Hadrian's Wall once marked the northern boundary of the Roman Empire, visitors can enjoy the unspoilt beauty of the Northumberland National Park.
Many watersport activities are available at Kielder Water.
The surrounding woodlands, forest trails and paths make Northumberland ideal for those interested in walking, whether it be slow strolls or power walking!
For those who desire wide open spaces and upland scenery, especially for walking, then the Cheviot Hills are exceptional rising to 2,674ft. The area has some of the best-preserved prehistoric hill-forts in Britain for you to explore and the Northumberland National Park has a range of self-guided leaflets to help you get the best from your visit. The Cheviots are crossed by two of the UK's long distance footpaths, The Pennine Way and St Cuthbert's Way.
