I have lived in Northumberland all my life and know that it is one of the most interesting/confusing places on earth. You can get all four seasons in one day sometimes, and as for watching the weather forecast, well Northumberland goes out of its way to confuse you.
It is the place to come to for history, culture, good food, beautiful beaches and never ending moors. To pursue water sports, walk miles, birdwatch the list is endless what ever you want you will find in here, or in nearby Newcastle. When the weather is good there are wonderful, sometimes even deserted beaches to explore and if the weather fails to,co-operate, plenty of history or shopping to pursue.
Other reviews list all the interesting places to go, things to do and see.
But pause a minute. Northumberland is for relaxing, for slowing the pace down, meandering along country roads, exploring, having a peaceful drink in the country pub you find along the way just looking at the view and feeling the tension leave your body. Don’t try and see everything it will still be here next time you come back, as you will.
