There are obviously many other amazing things to see and do in this friendly but wild area of England but digging out your hiking boots and going walking in Northumberland should be your number one activity if you are lucky enough to come up here.

I’ve chosen things that can generally be done anywhere, though I have included some London highlights too, being the Londonphile that I am.
