alnwick castleNorthumberland is often referred to as ‘England's last wilderness’. Offering miles of beautiful unspoilt countryside and beaches, it's a place of great natural beauty whose varied landscapes truly offer something for everybody.

The region is also rich in historical associations and is perhaps best known for its many imposing castles. These include Alnwick Castle and Garden, family home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, Dunstanburgh, Warkworth, Lindisfarne and Bamburgh castles. Roman remains are also plentiful, the most famous being Hadrian’s Wall. There are many sites of interest located along its 73-mile length.
