The high ground to the north of Bamburgh gives a great view of Bamburgh castle, the village and Farne Islands. While down on the beach or from the road you get a sense of the sheer size of the building.
Google asked the public which UK landmarks should be added to its Street View service and Bamburgh castle was the winner. You can see our Street View sightseeing tour on this page.
Sounds of the countryside
Some of the sounds you can enjoy in spring in north Northumberland. Featuring three exclusive stereo audio recordings.
Each lasts 60-90 seconds. They were recorded on 6 May between the hours of 6am and 8am. The photographs were taken at each location at the same time.
First is the sound of a burn, second a point on a public footpath between there and Juniper Hill (listen out for the owl at the beginning). Finally a small oak wood on the Hill itself. If you would like to do this walk, see footpath number one.
Take a trip to the Farne Islands
Spring is the best time to visit. Boat trips leave from Seahouses harbour.
The Farne Islands lie about two miles off the north-east coast and are one of the most famous sea bird sanctuaries in the British Isles.
An incredible 182 different species of bird were recorded there in 1999.
Guillemots, eider ducks and puffins (55,674 pairs in 2007) are just three that you may see. There is a large colony of grey seals too.
Four of the best beaches in north Northumberland. Whether you're paddling and building sandcastles, surfing or looking for peace and quiet, you'll find something here.
