National Park Week

Northumberland is home to some of the most spectacular national parks in the UK, and it was fantastic to see National Parks minister Lord Gardiner visit the county this week to mark National Parks week. Last year a record 1.5 million people visited Northumberland National Park, bringing £80 million to the economy. Lord Gardiner said “with its secluded valleys, clear night skies and rare wildlife, Northumberland National Park is one of our most tranquil and picturesque landscapes”, and with attractions like Hadrian’s Wall and The Sill, I would encourage everyone to enjoy the nature and outdoors at Northumberland National Park. We know how great Northumberland is- it’s great to see that everyone else is finding out too!
