Northumberland National Park named the nation’s favourite

Northumberland National Park has been named as Britain’s best national park in a consumer group survey of nearly ten thousand people.

Which? magazine asked more than 8,000 people to rank their favourite parks based on scenery, wildlife and facilities.

The park, which stretches from the Scottish Border to Hadrian's Wall, landed the number one spot - with 90% of the overall score.

It follows on from the news that Bamburgh, in Northumberland, was voted as the country's best seaside resort.
