Alnwick

Autumn in Northumberland...

 

At a time when many destinations are winding down, autumn is the perfect time for an indulgent trip to Northumberland, with major food festivals taking place in Alnwick and Berwick in September. 

Earn your tasty treats with long walks in Northumberland’s exquisite autumnal landscapes. See rare animals such as red squirrels gathering food in woodland, or go foraging with experienced guides who can help you source a veritable feast of produce as you explore the area.

If the weather isn’t favourable, lose yourself in Northumberland’s history. From Vikings to Romans, Border Reivers to Pitmen Painters, you can see them brought to life in museums and galleries such as Woodhorn and the Roman Army Museum. At the end of it all, sit back in a cosy pub and sample a locally-sourced menu.

Thanks to the nights becoming cooler and darker, the stars are brighter and clearer in autumn. Get to know our galaxy and more with an evening of stargazing at Kielder Observatory, or graze and gaze with the onsite observatory facilities at award-winning Battlesteads Hotel & Restaurant. Choose a Dark Sky Friendly accommodation to make the most of this star-studded canopy at your leisure.
