Things to do in Northumberland and around Boulmer Village

Best Beaches in Northumberland
To many visitors, the Northumberland coast is its most attractive feature, especially the long, uncrowded sandy beaches.
There are also many attractive fishing villages and little seaside resorts to visit. Plus - of course - the many dramatic castles. The 40 mile stretch of coast from Amble to Berwick-upon-Tweed has been officially recognised as both a "Heritage Coast" and an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty"

BAMBURGH BEACH: Mile upon mile of long, golden sands overlooked by the magnificent Bamburgh Castle.

BEADNELL BAY: A golden, sandy horshoe-shaped beach overloked by sand dunes and a small harbour. A Rural Seaside Award winner, graded "B" or good for its absence of litter.

EMBLETON BAY: Reached from the villages of Low Newton and Embleton, this quiet, sandy bay is overlooked by the dramatic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle.

Alnwick Castle
The home of the Duke and Duchess of Nothumberland. The Harry Potter films were shot here.

Alnwick Garden
This new garden is now one of the star attractions of Northumberland.
The centrepiece is the Grand Cascade, but the Rose Garden and the ornamental garden are worth a visit too. 

Barter Books, Railway Station, Alnwick.
One of the largest secondhand bookshops in Britain

Northumberland National Park
Exploring the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall
Walk in the Cheviot Hills
