The most northerly place in England
Northumberland is truly beautiful. In 2018, Northumberland won the title of best UK holiday county to visit in the British Travel Awards and it's not hard to see why. The wild coastline blends with the rugged landscape for an instant sense of the sweep of history. As the border county of Scotland, Northumberland has been the scene of many famous battles between the English and the Scots. Holidays at Haven in Northumberland are for adventure-seekers, explorers, and anyone looking for something a little different. You'll feel like you have thrilling yet tranquil stretches of coastline all to yourself, with ample opportunities to take in the rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, ruined castles and Roman remnants.

Northumberland National Park covers a quarter of the whole county, stretching from the Scottish border. Visit Kielder Water and Forest Park, the largest man-made lake in northern Europe. It's teeming with wildlife, outdoor activities and events. Or take a bit of a detour to Hadrian's Wall – this landmark of Roman Britain is truly legendary.
For film fans, it might well be obligatory to visit Alnwick Castle. Best known as Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films, it also starred in big movies like Elizabeth and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, not to mention a guest role in TV's Downton Abbey. Then if that's whetted your appetite for stately homes, Bamburgh Castle and Berwick Barracks are waiting for you.Places to visit in Northumberland
