Walking the Beauty of Northumberland
The Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Beauty, is a walker’s dream. Long sandy beaches, rocky foreshores and backed by high sand dunes with a scattering of small villages hugging the coast, walking here is a delight.
With plenty of pubs, tearooms and places to just stop, stand and stare, a Footsteps guided walk takes you to and shows you some of the hidden detail and brings the remarkable Northumberland Coast and its history to life.

Wildlife in Northumberland
As well as the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are two National Nature Reserves, the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne. That means wildlife, lots of wildlife, and there is something to see throughout the year.
Grey seals are a common sight, and bottle-nosed dolphins, porpoises and larger cetaceans like minke whale are often spotted from the shore or on a wildlife boat trip to the Farne Islands.
The coast is renowned for its wildflowers, rare orchids in the height of summer and the bloody cranesbill, the county flower of Northumberland grows in profusion beside the sea.

Northumberland Wildlife Seasons
In the summer, there are puffins on the Farne Islands; in winter, we see wild geese on the mudflats of the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve and if we’re lucky, we may spot short-eared owls, visitors from Scandinavia hunting through the dune grasslands.
Northumberland guarantees a succession of wildlife spotting opportunities through all four seasons. On a Footsteps guided walk, we take the time to stand and stare and observe what is around us; every day is a wildlife adventure in Northumberland.
So, book a Footsteps guided walk, you won’t be disappointed and you’ll never get lost, guaranteed!
