About Northumberland

Northumberland's special blessing lies in the fact that it is the least populated of all the English counties and therefore has mile upon mile of unspoilt open countryside dotted with quaint market towns and villages, left almost untouched by the march of time and the hand of progress. It has the wilderness of its great National Park, the fascination of bustling Newcastle-upon-Tyne and, Northumberland's coastline of beautiful empty beaches and towering cliffs offer seascapes rivalling those to be seen in any other part of the world.
Northumberland has more castles than any other county in England..
