Northumberland National Park is a feast for the senses.

Hear birdsong and tumbling burns in our ancient woodlands.

Smell the sun-bleached flowers of our rare hay meadows.

Explore our heather moorlands, rich in huge horizons and wildlife.

Or see the cotton grass waving on our important bogs.

Help us identify rare fungi, living in the National Park, by visiting our Waxcaps page.
