Northumberland National Park
Northumberland National Park
The most northerly of the National Parks in England, Northumberland National Park is also the least visited and the least populated, although that is due more to its location than to any lack of interesting reasons for visiting. The southern border of the park is marked by Hadrian's Wall, and some of the finest Roman sites in Britain lie within the park's borders.
At the northern extremity of the park is Kielder Forest Park, near Kielder Water, a huge purpose-built reservoir. There is excellent walking to the north of the River Coquet, and the river valley offers some of the most beautifully unspoilt scenery in the north of England.
