Autumn Leaves

Autumn brings an array of sights, sounds and smells to mind. The countryside comes alive with colour and the nostalgic aromas make us reminiscent of times gone by.

It’s the perfect season for long scenic walks and catching up with friends. So, grab your mittens and your hiking boots and head to some of the best autumnal destinations!

Lake District

Internationally known for its breath-taking terrain – a combination of mountains, lakes, forests and quaint picturesque towns.

Wander in and out of quirky independent stores and cafés. If you want to take a more active route you can hike some of the UK’s highest mountains for wonderful views!

Cragside

The home of famous inventor Lord Armstrong and the first home to be energised by hydroelectricity. Cragside was a house truly ahead of its time, packed with gadgets and inventions.

Not only is the home enchanting but the surrounding gardens are spectacular too. There’s so much to explore with over 1,000 acres of hills, lakes, woodland and gardens.

Kielder Water and Forest Park

The park is the home of Europe’s largest man-made lake and the largest forest in England. Try to spot some of the local wildlife or visit some of the world’s largest birds at the Birds of Prey Centre.

The skies are the least polluted in the UK, part of Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. Join a stargazing event at Kielder Observatory or simply stay after dark to experience the stars.

Hadrian’s Wall

Walk in the footsteps of Roman kings along Hadrian’s Wall, with over 20 heritage sites along the way. Enjoy the unspoilt scenery in Northumberland and relive years of roman occupation.

Hike across the landmark or visit one of the many of the forts that once protected the wall. Why not visit Chester’s Roman Fort and Museum? It’s a fantastic interactive museum about Roman history!
