Northumberland National Park
Northumberland National Park Authority
Along the western edge of this magnificent county are 405 square miles of outstanding landscape from Hadrian’s Wall - part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire -World Heritage Site in the south, to Kielder Water & Forest Park to the west, then reaching
up along the Cheviot Hills towards the Scottish Border. We have the clearest
air and darkest skies in Britain; and four of the country’s cleanest rivers are
sourced in our hills. The least populated of all the National Parks, it is home to
less than 2,000 people, most of whom live along one of its six main river valleys.
It is officially the country’s most tranquil location, criss-crossed by 700 miles of
footpaths and rights of way, where you can walk, cycle or horse-ride with only
the sounds of nature for company.
