Autumn view across Staward Pele

Enjoy the best bird's eye views without taking to the air. We picked ten views that we think are simply breathtaking, especially in autumn where the colour changes every day. All you have to do is get there.

Christmas shopping

Christmas doesn't have to be about the busy high streets and shopping centres. Do your Christmas shopping with us and you can shop till you drop and enjoy a peaceful walk, a warming fire and a great range of gift ideas.

Winter treats

This winter we'll have the finest seasonal produce on the menu in our cafes and restaurants. Sample delicious home grown ingredients and locally sourced produce in soups, stews, casseroles, cakes and scones.

Christmas at Wallington

Experience a traditional Christmas at Wallington every weekend in December. Bring the whole family along to enjoy festive crafts, story telling and a Christmas trail through the beautifully decorated house. 

Crafts at Seaton Delaval Hall

Seaton Delaval Hall have free family craft activities every Sunday. Drop in with your kids so that they can make a Christmas gift for Granny, Grandpa or just for themselves,.

Cragside's traditional lunch

If you can't wait until the big day itself, head up to Cragside for a traditional 3 course Christmas lunch with all the trimmings. After a walk around the estate, you'll definitely have earned it. Yum. 

Get outdoors

Do you love spending time outdoors? Whether you want to get into sport or already love cycling, running or walking, check out our downloadable routes, regular events and guided cycle rides.

Winter getaways

Fancy a view with your holiday cottage? Well, there's Housesteads Farm with the best preserved Roman Fort along Hadrian's Wall on your doorstep, or St Oswalds overlooking Lindisfarne Castle. And that's just two of them.
