Unveiling the Northumberland 250: A Tribute to Rich Heritage in the UK Countryside

What is the Northumberland 250? And why is everyone talking about it? The answers are below – if  you have the opportunity to travel this route grasp it with both hands!

Nestled in the captivating landscapes of northern England, the county of Northumberland stands as a testament to centuries of rich history and natural beauty.

Now you can travel around the county’s most famous and beautiful landmarks, covering 250 miles of terrain, visiting the Northumberland National Park all the way to the dramatic coastline of the North Sea. During the busy summer season, there’s always something for everyone to enjoy, from historical re-enactments and cultural festivals to guided tours and art exhibitions.

At the heart of the Northumberland 250 lies a deep appreciation for the county’s remarkable heritage and the people who have called it home for generations. From ancient castles and Roman ruins to quant villages and bustling market towns, each corner of Northumberland tells a story of resilience, ingenuity and community spirit.

And of course, a visit to Northumberland would be amiss without a stop off at Jobsons of Alnwick, based in the town centre, right next to the historic archway leading to the entrance of the ancient town. Come and say hi – we’d love to know your highlights of this historic and varied route through our beautiful county.

Much Love

Rachel and the Jobsons team
