The county of Northumberland lies on the border between England and Scotland and is well renowned for its breath taking landscapes and areas of natural beauty. Almost a quarter of the county is protected as Northumberland National Park and it is home to Hadrian’s Wall, the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland Sandstone Hills.
Northumberland is the most sparsely populated county in the UK, with just 62 people per square kilometre of land: compared to London, at 1,510 per square kilometre! There are no large centralised population areas as such, with the county town of Alnwick housing less than 10,000 residents.
A number of indigenous wildlife species can still be found in Northumberland, including Chillingham Cattle, roe deer, wildfowl and over 50% of England’s red squirrel population.
Northumberland’s culture and traditions are much more similar to those of Scotland than England, and give a unique hybrid feeling between the two countries. There are even unique English dialects within Northumbria, such as Pitmatic (also known as yakka, a mineworker’s dialect) for which protection groups exist to preserve the language.
It’s difficult not to fall in love with Northumberland, and lots of household names already have! Rugby player Johnny Wilkinson, footballer Alan Shearer and musicians Mark Knopfler and Sting all live in the county, and Robson Green, Percival Stockdale and Grace Darling were all born there. Plenty more visit daily… and few leave untouched by its natural beauty and charm.
The county is largely accessible by car and so once you’ve established a base, it is easily discoverable and all attractions can be reached within a day. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you’ll need less time than you would for a foreign holiday though: there’s lots to see and you’ll want to keep exploring once you get stuck in!
Northumberland is truly unique and has something for all appetites, ages and attitudes. It makes for the perfect place to discover more of Great Britain’s culture, history and countryside in ways you’d never have imagined.
Roman Britain’s biggest building project, Hadrian’s Wall, was the northern border of the Roman Empire and runs from the banks of the River Tyne across the country to the Irish Sea. The Wall can be walked or cycled along and there are numerous sites of historical interest along the route, along with stunning views of the dramatic countryside.
The Holy Island connects to the mainland by a causeway in low tide, linking it with the small village of Lindisfarne. Just south from the island and village is the small town of Alnwick, whose castle you may recognise from the Harry Potter films! Alnwick Castle is known as the ‘Windsor of the North’ and is truly one of the country’s finest and best kept castle retreats.
Home to the Northumberland Archives, Woodhorn Museum is a striking looking building and interesting place to spend a few hours. Truly ‘hands-on’ interactive exhibitions demonstrate the life and loves, and tears and tragedies of the local coal town throughout history and the proud achievements of the mining community there. Separate galleries play host to both permanent and temporary art collections, and the archives themselves offer a fascinating glimpse into local history. Access to Woodhorn and the archives is free, but some exhibitions may warrant an admission fee. Check ahead online for individual exhibition details.
