School Group Educational Visits in Northumberland
Northumberland is a large yet fairly sparsely populated county in the North East of England. The Cheviot Hills and Kielder Forest are perfect locations for an outward bound activity centre experience, and we have a good selection of centres for you to choose from.
Bordered to the east by the North Sea Coast, Northumberland has a celebrated history through its marine heritage. Perhaps most famously at the small island of Lindisfarne, where a Northumberland school visit to the Priory is the perfect place to introduce your KS2 class to the Viking Raiders!
To the north of the county is England's boundary with Scotland. And slightly further south, cutting through the lower part of Northumberland is a more ancient boundary where almost two thousand years ago, the Roman invaders halted their advance and built Hadrian's Wall. There are fewer better places in the country than Northumberland to learn about the Romans.
Another gem for a school group trip in Northumberland is the English Heritage managed site at Warksworth Castle. From its early story in the twelfth century through the Scottish raids and the English Civil War, the castle is a fantastic learning resource and free entry for school groups
