First post-pandemic Northumberland guide and map launched by tourist board
With stunning beaches, the UK’s favorite national park and a coastline dotted with castles, Northumbrians know there are few better places to spend a day than their home county.
However, visitors still come to learn what an incredible destination Northumberland is. And a new guide and map launched by the official Northumberland Tourist Board hopes to offer some suggestions on how visitors can make the most of their time in the county.
Visit Northumberland’s new Days Out leaflet aims to encourage visitors to stay longer and live more in 2022, with over 50 activities, attractions, events and places to eat and drink, shop and stay included. A total of 150,000 copies have been distributed across the county, in support of its ambition to bring tourism back to pre-Covid levels – in 2019 the sector grossed £1.04billion and directly employed more than 13,000 people.

Also included are some of the county’s most popular outdoor landscapes and destinations, such as Kielder Water and Forest Park, Northumberland National Park, Northumberland Coast AONB and North Pennines AONB. The new leaflet follows the reopening of two of the county’s coastal tourist information centers at Seahouses and Craster, which will be open seven days a week until the end of October, alongside year-round operation at Morpeth Chantry and to the network of information points in the county libraries.
