Grand castles tower above white-sand beaches, ancient monuments frame heather-flecked moorlands and vast forests come alive with the sound of birdlife… few places let you escape the everyday like Northumberland, one of England’s most varied natural wonderlands.
Explore the untouched beauty of Northumberland’s expansive coastline, with its seemingly endless sands and dramatic cliffside scenery. Along the way, you’ll uncover rich historic sites including mighty Bamburgh Castle and spiritual Lindisfarne.
And wildlife encounters abound at the special RSPB reserve at Coquet Island. Set sail from Amble during the summer months for close encounters with the island’s residents - colourful puffin, Arctic tern and exceptionally rare roseate tern.
Northumberland’s interior is similarly spellbinding. The pretty market town of Alnwick is home to one of the world’s leading contemporary gardens and Alnwick Castle aka Hogwarts! The magic continues at Kielder Forest the country’s largest forest haven and Dark Sky Park, where you’ll find osprey, goshawks and half of all England’s native red squirrels. A true treat for any nature lover.
Wildlife adventures continue in the surrounding areas too. Nearby RSPB reserves include Saltholme near Middlesbrough, with such varied birds as yellow wagtails and peregrine, and Geltsdale in Cumbria, a summer retreat for common tern and lapwing.
