Whether you're an experienced walker or enjoy more leisurely rambles Northumberland offers both challenging long distance trails and leisurely circular walks, it also has some fantastic coastal paths. Perhaps one of the most famous walks is Hadrian's Wall path which follows the Roman Frontier and is now a World Heritage Site. Another great long distance route is St Oswalds Way which links Holy Island with Hadrian's Wall and encompasses all that Northumberland has to offer along its 156km length. But of course you don't have to cover the whole walk to enjoy it!
Wildlife enthusiasts will feel right at home on the Northumberland Coast where in the summer the sea and offshore islands are teaming with seabirds. Fulmars glide effortlessly alongside the path and the dunes are ablaze with colourful yellow rattle, pink orchids and the deep purple cranesbill.
If you are looking for a beautiful, dramatic county to holiday in then the tranquillity of Northumberland will defiantly appeal to you.
