Information for New Visitors
If you’re thinking of visiting Northumberland National Park for the first time, we’ve put together some information below to help you plan your day out.
Northumberland National Park is a living, working landscape so it’s important to practise social distancing when you visit, even when out and about in the National Park.
We want you to enjoy your visit and stay safe and we hope this information will help you make the best of your day.
Things to do and places to visit
Whether you’re looking for a walk into the hills or just a quiet place to picnic with friends and family, please stay safe and keep those around you safe too. Be sure to explore our website for inspiration about where to visit.
Many local facilities within the National Park are still closed, including pubs, cafés, restaurants and many local shops. If you’re coming to the National Park, you’ll need to pack a bag and bring everything you need with you – remembering to take it all away with you again.
