Northumberland is one of eight key regions featured on England’s Coast.com. Visitors to Northumberland are attracted by its rugged coastline, a mix of unspoilt sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and secluded coves, guarded by the most spectacular castles.
Rich in history and heritage, the coast is an undiscovered gem where empty beaches often experience wild seas with crashing surf – an awesome sight for visitors. Those in search of adventure activities are spoilt for choice here, while nature lovers can spot wildlife at a number of vantage points, particularly on Northumberland’s islands, just a few miles off the coast.
Traditionally dependent on the sea, the county’s fishing communities provide a friendly welcome to visitors and offer a fascinating range of local seafood as well as an array of festivals and events.
