Historic re-enactment at Northumberland National Park.

Visitors watch on as Roman archers prepare to fire during a re-enactment near Hadrian’s Wall.

History buffs will feel right at home here in Northumberland National Park. Will you delve into our Roman or Reiver past in Historic Sites and Landmarks? There are some excellent Museums unravelling many historic secrets with 21st century technology.

Marvel at the stately Houses & Gardens just outside the Park boundary, designed for a slower pace of life. To bring things bang up to date, take in some art galleries, or maybe a film or a show, at one of the gateway towns just outside the Park, in The Arts.
