Located in the far northeastern corner of England, Northumberland National Park is one of the remotest and most pristine national parks in the nation, covering an area of no less than 400 square miles (just more than 1,000 square kilometers). The Northumberland National Park landscapes include everything from bogs and swamps, to rolling farmlands and patches of forest, to steep hills and striking Roman ruins.
It is a spectacular place, a place so rugged it was chosen by the Romans as the northernmost frontier of their empire. That frontier was materialized with the construction of Hadrian’s Wall, which now cuts across the park and basically ran—and still runs—from the North Sea coast to the Irish Sea coast.
This post is entirely dedicated to the stunning Northumberland National Park landscapes, more specifically those along Hadrian’s Wall and the superb Hadrian’s Wall Path. This area is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As I believe that there’s nothing like a collection of beautiful photos to showcase what a place has to offer—words can only say so much—I wanted to share with you guys my ten personal favorite photos of the landscapes of Northumberland National Park.
You may take my word for it; Northumberland National Park is an awe-inspiring destination, an excellent option for anyone looking for a week-long hike, for a place to really get away from it all and immerse themselves in empty landscapes, or for a new place to go practice their photography skills. Of course, all of these things can be combined in one fun hiking vacation, which is actually what I would recommend.
Anyways,I won’t waste any more words now and let you continue to the photos! I hope you enjoy them and that they will inspire you to put Northumberland National Park on your bucket list.
