Hadrian's Wall
The main tourist attraction in this part of Northumberland is of course Hadrian's Wall.

Housesteads, Vindolanda, Chesters, Corbridge and the Roman Army Museum are all within a short drive.

You may like to take advantage of the Hadrian's Wall Bus which often has a guide on board.

Kielder Water
Kielder, the largest man-made lake in Europe, lies in the heart of the Northumberland National Park. The scenery is stunning and you can walk, sail, cycle or simply soak up the view, enjoying the peace and tranquility.

There are several National Trust properties in the area. For a day out be sure to visit Holy Island and take a boat trip to the Farne Islands. Visit Alnwick Castle with its famous garden project, Chillingham, Dunstanburgh, Wallington Hall and the magnificent Bamburgh Castle.

Hexham Abbey
The bustling market town of Hexham in Tynedale has an Abbey whose crypt dates from AD 675. The historic market place, medieval towers and the 14th century Old Gaol housing the Border History Museum, are well worth visiting.
