Northumberland is England’s northernmost county and has more castles than any other county in England
Northumberland is so big on beauty that it doesn’t have a city — just small villages and hamlets scattered across the sparsely populated landscape like historic jewels. It’s also home to one of the UK's most spectacular national parks, Northumberland National Park. Along with untamed natural beauty, the landscape is filled with Roman ruins and crumbling forts. When you’re exploring the many walking trails in Northumberland, it’s not hard to imagine what it must have been like living here all those years ago. Northumberland is the ideal spot for an active English adventure with plenty of history along the way.
