Top 10 Recommended Things To Do in Northumberland National Park


Simonside Hills

On the eastern fringe of the Park. Popular hiking destination and stunning when the heather turns purple. Look out for Cup and Ring Marks, Simonside Hills.

Housesteads Roman Fort

Impressive and famous Roman fort in the south of the Park. Part of Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site.

Cheviot Hills

To the north of the Park and on the England/Scotland border. The Cheviot is the highest mountain in the range at 815m/2674ft.

Steel Rigg and Crag Lough

A particularly beautiful and popular stretch of Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site to the south of the Park. The iconic Sycamore Gap is here.


One of the UK's most impressive Roman sites. It's on the southern border of the Park and close to Steel Rigg and Crag Lough and Housesteads Roman Fort. Highly recommended.

Woodhouses Bastle

Northumberland is known for its impressive stock of castles. There are also numerous 'bastles' or defensible farmhouses in the area. Woodhouses is a good example. Tosson Tower is just up the road.

Otterburn Ranges

The promotional blurb on the information board at the beginning of the Otterburn Ranges reads: 'some of the most breathtaking views of Northumberland National Park'. We'd agree. A memorable drive.

College Valley

One of the major valleys within the Cheviot Hills. There's parking at the head of the valley and a footpath leading to the 'Pennine Way' and up to the summit of 'The Cheviot'.

Cragside House and Gardens

National Trust property just beyond the eastern border of the Park. First house in the world lit by hydroelectricity. The gardens are stunning.

Kielder Water and Forest Park

A short drive to the west of the Park. The largest man-made lake in the UK surrounded by its largest man-made forest.
