Beyond the city

North Pennines

The second largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, the North Pennines are a natural utopia.

Saddle up, put on your walking boots, or grab your fishing rod, the North Pennines offer a wealth of outdoor adventuring. The ancient meadows and heather moors here, inhabited with small animals and birds, prove why the Brits are proud nature lovers.

From Sunderland, the Pennines are between an hour and hour and a half drive, depending on where exactly you head to. If you drive on further through the country fields, you can visit Long Meg and Her Daughters, a secluded Bronze Age stone circle.
