The county of Northumberland is a dream destination for meeting planners wanting to host conferences, meetings and events a little further afield than usual.
The most northerly county in the UK has long been fought over due to its border with Scotland but in recent times has become a tranquil haven for both conference delegates and tourists alike given attractions such as Hadrian’s Wall and many picturesque, deserted beaches.
Boasting a magical blend of town, coast and country settings, Northumberland offers event organisers a beautifully diverse landscape that features not only an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in its magnificent heritage coastline but also spectacular national parks that provide the perfect environment for teambuilding events and corporate activities on both land and water. With superb golf courses catering for corporate golf events, all delegates will find an activity to enjoy in this remarkable county.
Welcoming villages and town such as Berwick-upon-Tweed, situated close to the Scottish border, Alnwick and Hexham, located in the south of the county, provide an excellent array of meeting venues able to cater for all corporate events.

Travelling to Northumberland by car is easy from both Scotland and the south thanks to the A1 connecting London to Edinburgh and traversing the county whilst the A69 and A66 link with the M6 and the A19 provides an alternative route from the south. Rail access is just as convenient with many direct services connecting to London whilst Newcastle Airport lies in close proximity for international conference delegates.
