Have you ever been to Northumberland? Did you see Hadrian’s Wall? What towns are worth visiting? Things to do etc?

Northumberland is famous for its castles, great expanses of sandy beaches, its rural countryside and big skies.
Here are some suggestions for visits:
Alnmouth and Alnwick Castle
Lindisfarne (check tidal conditions)
Northumberland National Park for Kielder Water and dark skies
Craster for smoked kippers and Dunstanburgh Castle

Its close to where I live, so have been there many times. It’s a very scenic part of England with roiling moorland and great coastal scenery.
There is of course Hadrian’s wall and many castles , best known being Alnwick castle due to some scenes from Harry Potter being filmed there. ( it is a fine castle but does NOT look like Hogwarts) . It is a bit of a tourist trap and expensive. Bamburgh castle is more spectacular with its coastal setting and it too has featured in several films.
There are few major towns , (Newcastle is just outside in Tyne and Wear though traditionally part of Northumberland. Pre-covid, it was a good place for a lively night out.), Berwick upon Tweed being the biggest with some nice parts in the old town.
There are great beaches the entire length of the coast, in fact it’s almost a one continuous beach for 50 or so miles.

Yes. It's a lovely county. Hadrian's wall is worth seeing.
