Photo Inspiration: Northumberland National Park

Northumberland National Park may not be the most well-known of the English national parks—for one, it is one of the most remote and least visited—but it is absolutely spectacular.

Situated in the far northeast of England, it comprises a landscape of expansive meadows and undulating hills, bogs and wetlands, forests and ruins. Inarguably the star attraction of Northumberland National Park is Hadrian’s Wall, which effectively used to be the northernmost frontier—one of the very first actual, physical borders between nations—of the Roman Empire. This magnificent wall and its surroundings are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The best way to explore this stunning region is by hiking the world-class Hadrian’s Wall Path.

I’ve talked about both the Hadrian’s Wall Path and Northumberland National Park in previous blog posts, so now I would like to dedicate an entire post simply to a collection of my favorite Northumberland National Park photos. All of the following photos were taken during my hike along the Hadrian’s Wall Path.
