Days Out Attractions & Buildings


Home to northern Europe’s largest man-made lake, England’s largest forest and officially the country’s most tranquil spot, Kielder Water & Forest Park is not to be missed. Nature lovers, water sports enthusiasts, explorers, walkers, cyclists, artists, families… anyone looking to escape, set their own agenda and create new experiences will delight in everything the park has to offer. The lakeside trail encircles Kielder Water stretching for 26 miles. A haven for wildlife – explorers can expect to encounter deer, otters, badgers, bats and rare breeds of birds including the first breeding ospreys in Northumberland in 200 years. Famed for having the darkest night skies in England thanks to minimal light pollution, Kielder Water & Forest Park is a star gazers’ heaven and the Observatory offers exciting opportunities for those with an interest in learning more about the night sky.
