Two people canoeing on Tumbleton Lake

Normal admission charges apply for this event

A favourite past-time of Lord Armstrong's was canoeing on his lakes. This summer, make like Armstrong and rent a canoe on Tumbleton Lake. This activity is part of a guided tour, where an expert from Cullercoats Bike & Kayak will take you round the lake whilst sharing the fascinating story of Cragside with you.

Dates for the guided canoe tours will be annouced shortly, please check back here for more details or visit Cullercoats Bike & Kayak's website
