Your neighbourhood

Northumberland is unspoilt, undiscovered and one of the most beautiful areas in England and was once a former Kindom in its own right.

Northumberland vistor such as www.visitnorthumberland.com or www.nationaltrail.co.uk/hadrianswall/ are a good start for ideas.

Northumberland has its own unique heritiage with its own little know language, a common mistake is to think that this is a dialect. The language derives from Angle-Northumbrian from a King Ida speech http://www.northumbriana.org.uk/langsoc/. Northumberland has its own interesting flag which you spot everywhere a proud people http://www.mrflag.com/p/5212/England__Northumberland__Traditional_.html

You here for a holiday, there is lots and lots to do. Hadrians Wall is quite near as are a number of other interesting places, if your a shopper Newcastle and Gateshead are not that far.

Hadrians Wall http://www.hadrians-wall.org/ including Vindolanda http://www.vindolanda.com/

Newcastle http://www.newcastlegateshead.com/

Newcastle (45mins in car), Gateshead about 3/4 of an hour, both have great shopping, art galleries and everything in between. There is easy access to Newcastle airport and the sea ports as well.
