How to get to Northumberland?
Getting to Northumberland
Northumberland is a largely rural area consisting of towns and villages, so there are no airports within the county itself. However, Newcastle Airport is located just a short drive away and Northumberland is within easy reach from there. Though it is possible to get to the county via public transport, visitors with Northumberland vacation rentals will probably find it more convenient to rent their own vehicle. The area is largely rural and it will be difficult to reach a lot of the attractions without a set of wheels.
What is the weather like in Northumberland?
Weather in Northumberland
Northumberland has slightly better weather than other parts of the UK. Summer days tend to be a little warmer and it’s also drier throughout the year, receiving less rainfall than the UK average. That said, Northumberland isn’t somewhere you visit primarily for the weather. Winters can be very cold, while the roughly 150 days of rain are spread over the whole year. This means that even in the summer it's not unlikely to run into some rain. The weather is unpredictable, so it’s best to make sure your Northumberland vacation homes are well stocked with waterproof clothing.
What are the top sights in Northumberland?
Northumberland’s great attractions
Northumberland is a county full of history. Start your trip with a visit to Hadrian’s Wall, a World Heritage Site that was built in the 2nd century A.D. by the Romans. Drive to the wall just to get a close-up look at it, or amble along the adjacent footpath and make an afternoon of it. However you choose to experience the wall, it's worthwhile spending some time at a spot that has been the center of so many political and military scuffles throughout Britain’s long history.
The stunning Alnwick Castle has been a Northumberland fixture since 1309, and is one of the largest and best-preserved castles in the country. It has been used as a filming location for many films and television shows over the years, including Downton Abbey, two Robin Hood films and the first two Harry Potter instalments. Visit the magnificent state rooms or roam the extensive grounds and you’ll be walking through history.
You’ll no doubt be spending a lot of time in the Northumberland National Park during your stay at Northumberland vacation rentals. This large area offers great opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding and birdwatching. There are also many markets that take place each month in the National Park. Here you can buy high-quality, locally produced cheeses, jam and meat products, among other things. At night, head to the park and look towards the stars – the area is Europe’s largest Dark Sky Park and you’ll see many hundreds of thousands of twinkling stars on a clear night.
