Things to do

Free and low-cost events

Fancy falconry or stargazing? Maybe you’re into history or volcanoes? We have great events and guided walks. Take a look at our What’s On section.

Awesome outdoor adventure

From cycling to climbing, water sports to running, there are loads of opportunities to get your heart pumping and your confidence soaring.

Rainy days?

When the sun doesn’t shine, you can still enjoy yourself. Take a look at our Rainy Days page for inspiration.

Car-free carefree

You don’t have to drive to be able to enjoy Northumberland National Park. By using the bus or train, you’ll be helping the environment too. Please take a look at our Travel section.

Younger brothers and sisters?

There are some great family-friendly ideas on our Families page.
