Nationale parken

 Northumberland National Park  -  Land of the far horizons
From exploring Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site to striding through the grandeur of the Cheviot Hills, there is so much to enjoy. Through its heart run the majestic rivers of the North Tyne, Rede and Coquet where otters play, salmon leap and fishermen dream. This is also a rugged borderland, where its Reiver past confronts you in the castles and bastles, which pepper this landscape.

Its heart was designed by John Dobson at the start of the 19th century - it radiates out from Grey Street's fine pale-gold Georgian buildings. Its icon-bridges are now joined by the 'blinking eye' bridge, described as one of the best inventions of the twentieth century.

 Tees Valley
Kan gezien worden als Groot-Teesside en bestaat uit vier 'unitary authorities' samengesteld na het opbreken van de County of Cleveland in 1996: Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland, en Stockton-On-Tees tesamen met de Borough of Darlington [ unitary authority in 1997 ].
 Tyne and Wear  -  Tyne and Wear
Het gebied van Tyne and Wear ligt in de estuaria van de rivieren Tyne en Wear, en grenst de graafschappen Durham en Northumberland. Er is geen county council.
Bestaat uit de districten Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, South Tyneside en City of Sunderland.

 Alnwick  -  Alnwick District Council
 Berwick-Upon-Tweed  -  Berwick-upon-Tweed
 Darlington Borough Council  -  Tees Valley
Darlington and its surrounding areas provide a wide spectrum of activities, leisure and sporting events and places of cultural interest for all ages
 Durham  -  Durham City Council  =  vooral bekend om zijn kathedraal
Gebouwd tussen 1093 en 1133 en zetel van de bisschop van Durham, ťťn van de belangrijkste personen in de Anglicaanse Kerk. In de kathedraal liggen de resten begraven van drie heiligen Beda, Cuthbert van Lindisfarne en Oswald van Northumbria. Zie ook Durham City Tourist Board.
 Gateshead  -  Gateshead Council
Largest in area of the five Tyne and Wear districts. It comprises the mainly urban areas of Central Gateshead, Felling, Dunston and Blaydon and the more rural districts of Ryton, Whickham and parts of the Derwent Valley.
 Hexham  -  centrale marktplaats voor het Tynedale district
The Town Hall is Victorian high gothic; the library is first-rate arts and crafts; the quite eccentric Transporter Bridge is utterly unique.
 Morpeth  -  Morpethnet
 South Shields
 Sunderland  -  Sunderland 
It has one of very few national museums outside London - the National Glass Centre. It's just reinvented the Winter Garden idea, building a 21st century palm-house in a city-centre park; it has one of Britain's earliest Christian churches; and its University is a fashionable new hotspot for young film-makers. Durham was described by Bill Bryson as 'a perfect little city'. Its history shows in every cobble - it even used to be a principality! Its cathedral and castle are designated world heritage sites. And it's an international centre of learning, with one of Britain's leading universities.
 Tynedale District
Tynedale, in Northumberland, is the largest district council area in England. It's major towns include Hexham - a market town, Prudhoe - a growing industrial town, and the former mining town of Haltwhistle. There are commuter settlements within easy reach of Tyneside, parishes where forestry dominates and truly remote agricultural areas.
Tynedale contains much of the spectacular Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site and other areas of outstanding natural beauty, including large parts of the Northumberland National Park, the North Pennines, Kielder Forest (one of the largest forests in th UK) and Kielder Water (the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe).
 Whitley Bay

 Alnwick Garden
The site on which The Alnwick Garden is built has had a colourful history, with gardens being built here designed by leading contemporary designers of their day. How fitting that The Alnwick Garden should have been classed by many as one of the finest public gardens to have been build in over 100 years.
The North of England Open Air Museum, where the past comes to life. Beamish is unique. not an ordinary museum but a living, working experience of life as it was in the Great North in the early 1800s and 1900s.
Step on board of one of their trams and transport yourself into the past.
 Kust Northumbria en achterland
Starting at the coast, there are beaches inhabited only by oyster catchers. There are fishing villages like Seahouses and Craster, still working and full of character. Or there are seaside towns that grew - Alnmouth, Seaton Carew and Tynemouth grew into Victorian resorts; Saltburn went as far as pier-and-prom status. And Whitley Bay became an icon of Thirties railway posters! Or what about the countryside? Market towns grew up around the castles - places like Alnwick, Barnard Castle and Staindrop all existed symbiotically with the Big House. There are tiny villages that used to really matter - Escomb's Saxon Church, and Warkworth's giant church show their past status.
 Durham en de Tees Valley 
An area of exciting contrasts. Whether you seek a country ramble over expansive moorland, sandy beaches and towering cliffs, shopping and fine dining or to discover the heritage of smugglers haunts and famous explorers. The Tees Valley area is so compact that you can really do all these things in a day or two.
The Tees Valley is at the heart of Captain Cook Country, on the doorstep of the North York Moors National Park, as well as a 'stone's throw' (30 miles) from Whitby, York, Durham and Newcastle.
The Tees Valley is an area encompassing the five historic boroughs of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton on Tees.
 Kielder Water and Forest
Tucked away at the top of Northumberland, close to the Scottish Border and Hadrian's Wall, beautiful Kielder Water is the largest man-made lake in Europe. Kielder Forest, one of Britain's biggest nature resorts, is home to red squirrels, deer and rare birds.
The lake fringes and forest glades can best be explored by walking, cycling or on horseback, and there are many self-guided trails. Activities for all the family, a variety of accommodation, easy accessibility and closeness to villages and Northumberland National Park are among the many attractions, making Kielder ideal for holidays or leisure pursuits, including fishing, boating, riding and watersports.
 Lindisfarne  -  Heilig eiland
 Tees Forest
The Tees Forest is one of twelve community forests in England.
 Tees Valley  -  Destination Tees Valley
From the salmon rich reaches of the upper Tees to the coastal beauty and character laden sea ports. From the Transporter Bridge's tribute to the area's engineering heritage to the untouched pleasures of the green lanes. From lighthouses and ships to industrial innovation and a resilient enterprising spirit. They've got a lot to shout about in the Tees Valley.

Geschiedenis van Northumbria

Northumbria was een van de belangrijkere Angelsaksische koninkrijken in het Engeland van voor Willem de Veroveraar. Zie history of Northumbria.

 Bedes' World
Bede began his Ecclesiastical History of the English People, completed in 731, in the days of Roman Britain, when Christianity first arrived in this island, and traced the thread of Christianity through the departure of the Romans, the arrival of the Angles, Saxons and Jutes and the development and eventual conversion of the early Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. The Age of Bede exhibition follows the pattern of Bede's narrative.
 Hadrian's Wall Country
Nearly 2000 years ago in 122 AD, the Emperor Hadrian embarked on a huge undertaking: to mark the northernmost boundary of Roman Britain with an unusually long fortified wall. Skirmishing tribes were contained behind it for over 350 years and Hadrian's name written indelibly into the history of this evocative and diverse part of the UK.
Today, parts of Hadrian's Wall are still visible; the line of it stretching from Wallsend in the east to Bowness-on -Solway in the west, and the fortifications continuing down the west coast to Ravenglass.
 Train Rail - History, Heritage & Fun
Train Trail is eight uniquely different train attractions set within splendid North East countryside and easily presented for you to create the perfect day out. Attractions are individually priced, several are totally free to enter.
Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum bring history alive. Vindolanda is a fascinating Roman fort and civilian settlement lying just to the south of Hadrian's Wall. The Roman Army Museum, situated beside one of the best preserved sections of the Wall, offers a captivating insight into the garrisons of Hadrian's Wall. Don't forget to check out what is happening at the moment on our excavation news page.

Northumbria is more than just a reminder of our countries past warfare, it the home of Celtic Christianity in England which has produced some of the finest churches, abbeys, and cathedrals in the world and is home to figures such as St. Aiden, St. Bede and St. Cuthbert. Northumbria has its own food and drink, tartan, distinct birds and wildlife, flag and is the only British county to have its own music instrument! See The Northumbrian Association.

 Lindisfarne Gospels
The Lindisfarne Gospels are one of the treasures of the Christian Church in Northumbria. They were produced in the 7th. century by a monk called Eadfrith. He became Bishop of Lindisfarne in 698 and died in 721 at a time which is sometimes called the "Golden Age of Northumbria" when learning and artistic skills were at a peak. This was the age in which the Venerable Bede wrote his "Ecclesiastical History" and in which the great Celtic Saints like Aidan and Cuthbert carried out their missionary work for the conversion of the North.
