Explore the peaceful Northumberland National Park, England

One of the best places to visit in the UK is Northumberland National Park is home to one of the country’s most iconic landmarks and a reminder of its storied past.

The famous barrier, Hadrian’s Wall, was once the last bastion of the Roman Empire, the largest of the ancient world. Head to Cawfields for stargazing a stone’s throw from the wall, where the zero light pollution makes the celestial show above clearer than you could hope for. ⁣

Stonehaugh and Harbottle are also great stargazing spots. See a shooting star or two and don’t forget to make a wish.

Hadrian’s Wall isn’t the only impressive Roman ruins you’ll find in Northumberland National Park. Housesteads Roman Fort, once home to 1,000 soldiers, is a well-preserved example of ancient architecture. ⁣
