Northumberland boasts a huge diversity in the character of its landscape. From the wild uplands of the Cheviot Hills and North Pennines, to the fertile valleys of the Tyne and Tweed and on to the magnificent cliffs and sweeping beaches of the coastal fringe, the county has almost everything. The history is very special too, with some of the most influential events in British history having happened here. Stone, Bronze and Iron Age people, Romans, Dark Age Warlords and Christians, Reivers and Industrialists have all left their mark. Itís all there to be discovered if you know where to look.
