Take a Virtual Tour

Back in April 2015 we became the first UK National Park to work alongside Google on their Trekker project. Over two weeks staff and volunteers worked to capture images of some of Northumberland’s most iconic spots; including Hadrian’s Wall, the Pennine Way and many more for inclusion in Google Streetview.

Our work is available as interactive 360° imagery that allows you to go on a self-guided tour of the landscape. This fabulous resource is freely available online for everyone to enjoy.

In November 2015 Laurian Clemence at Google UK, said ‘We are delighted to have worked with the Northumberland National Park to bring Hadrian’s Wall and the surrounding rich, historical landscape to Street View. Now anyone can view this key part of our heritage using Google Maps, from the comfort of their homes or on the move.’

As we continue to bring the OutdoorsIndoors, explore our Google content for a whistle-stop, stay at home tour of Northumberland National Park.  Check out our examples, move the images below to explore in 360° and then use Google Streetview to find your own favourite place.
