Often described as England’s ‘last great wilderness’, Northumberland National Park is one of England’s 15 National Parks, covering 405 square miles from Hadrian’s Wall to the Scottish Borders.
The least populated of all of the UK’s 15 National Parks, the diverse landscape of Northumberland attracts millions of visitors each year who come to enjoy the heritage, history and culture of this ancient, unspoilt place.
Comprising rolling hills, rare grasslands and some of Britain’s cleanest rivers, starry dark skies and a fantastic array of wildlife, as well as world-famous landmarks such as Hadrian’s Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site and The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre, Northumberland National Park offers something for everyone which is why it has been voted Britain’s favourite National Park, not once, but twice!
Northumberland National Park Authority is the custodian of this dramatic landscape and it is our life’s work to ensure its protection for future generations to enjoy. Our work covers a wide range of areas from conservation to ecology and restoration of ancient monuments to local planning, but above all, we love to share our landscape with visitors. So, this Easter, dig out your walking boots and prepare to get stuck in!
