Lace up and get stuck in

Walking is the best way to see Northumberland National Park. Take a relaxing stroll to walk off that tasty pub lunch or stride out on a long-distance moorland trail across Northumberland National Park. The choice is yours.

Our wide skies, dramatic views and glorious history will make any route more than “a walk in the park”. You have more than 900 km (600 miles) of waymarked footpaths and bridleways to choose from.

Walking in Northumberland National Park

If you’re unsure about navigating and hiking, come along to one of our Guided Walks that run throughout the year. Alternatively, head out by yourself with one of our walking routes. You can have a look at our Walking Checklist if you’re setting out on your own.

Our staff at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre and Walltown Visitor Centre can tailor routes to suit you. You can also get information on the weather, public transport, path changes, the location of car parks, and details on accommodation, as well as all sorts of maps, leaflets and books to help plan your walk.
