England's northernmost National Park, Northumberland covers about a quarter of the county with which it shares its name, just skirting underneath Hadrian's Wall.
Northumberland is also the least inhabited and least visited of all Britain's National Parks. Far from making this a deterrent, those who visit the National Park cite this as one of the reasons why, with its Cheviot Hills, Kielder Forest and Kielder Water being among the quietest of all National Park attractions.
The 10,000 year history of the region can be explored through many archaeological sites, ranging from prehistoric monuments and Roman remains, to Pele towers constructed as defence against Border Reivers.
