The National Park is wholly within the region of North East England, but also borders Scotland and Cumbria.
The natural and cultural qualities of Northumberland National Park were defined as part of the preparation of the 2003 Management Plan. A series of community and visitor consultations and part of the current review confirm that these ‘special qualities’ have not changed and are recognised as:
- Distinctive landscape character
- A landscape rich in biodiversity and Geology
- A rich cultural heritage
- True sense of tranquility
