I purchased this guide for my first trip to Northumberland for a spot of walking. It's divided up into 5 sections: The Coast, The Hills, Hadrians Wall, Cities and Saints and Wear and Tees. Each section contains a coded map that shows points of interest and the start points to walks and tours (for car drivers). There are suggestions for weekends away - what to do and where to go and features on major towns too. Pubs, cafes, tea rooms, tourist information centres, shopping, places of interest - country parks - all are listed to give an overall quite comprehensive guide. On the down side to it, I would have liked a few more walks to have been included and the detail of the maps to have been better. The maps for walkers are not detailed enough so you do need to try to transpose the route across onto an OS Explorer map if you are going to have any chance of navigating your way around.

That said, if you are unfamiliar with an area then I think this guide is a reasonable starting point for planning your visit and familiarising yourself with the area.

It's a good intro to Northumberland but if you are a dog owner it gives you no guidance on the welcome they'll receive.

For info - the beaches in Northumberland are open all year to dogs. Housesteads (at Hadrian's Wall) and Lindisfarne welcome dogs even amongst the ruins. Alnwick doesn't even allow them in the grounds neither does Vindolanda (part of Hadrian's wall)

Another excellent travel book giving information on places to visit, car tours (cycles rides if you prefer, and also a selection of walks varying in length. In the route facts it gives the distance/time anticipated, starting point/finishing point for refreshments etc, terrain and which OS maps to be used in conjunction with.

Straight forward. Easy to use. Just used the coast section but found everything as described. Would recommend it to anyone going to Northumbria for the first time.

We were very disappointed at this purchase. As a publication of the AA we had anticipated that it would focus on car trips alas much of the emphasis was on walking tours. The information content was low and the maps at the back would challenge the sight of even an eagle. Not to be recommended.
