What to do

 

Whether you would like to let your feet sink into the soft sand of Goswick and allow the vast skyscape to soak into your soul or you want to throw yourself wet-suited into the deep water by Cullernose Point or you are on a mission to find where to buy the best cheese you’ve ever tasted, here are the keys to find the many things you can do and see in Northumberland and the Borders.

Explore the many aspects of the natural world and try the exciting activities which will take you right into the middle of this landscape. Visit castles and beautiful houses and gardens and all the attractions from the deep history of Northumberland and the Borders, moulded by the countryside from which it unfolds. Enjoy the art and culture inspired by all of this and seek out the spirituality of the perfect environment to find your own place of calm.

Join in with the many events happening throughout the year which include great venues for film and theatre. Then for the memory of your trip (as well as the essentials for your stay) go shopping in one of our many local shops.
