Things to Do in Northumberland – May

Things to do in Northumberland

With Spring in full bloom there is simply no better time of year to visit and enjoy Northumberland at it’s most beautiful. As you would expect with the Bank Holiday towards the start of the month there are a huge number of things to do.

There are various gardens around the County and they are particularly spectacular this month and shouldn’t be missed.  As well as all the wide range of events hosted around the region.

The Festival of the Heavy Horse is a celebration of all that the horses have been used for over their working life. Visitors will be able to see horses working in the field on springtime jobs, along with ridden and driven displays.
