Visit Wooler

The town of Wooler is located on Wooler Water (a large stream) in northern Northumberland, close to both the northern part of the Northumberland National Park and to the Cheviot Hills.

Wooler itself is a quiet, traditional town (much busier in the summer than the winter!) of stone buildings which has all facilities for those exploring the region, including a good selection of accommodation options, and a wide selection of shops, pubs etc

The highlight of the annual calendar takes place on August Bank Holiday, when the Glendale Agricultural Show takes place (Glendale is the historical name for this region). The Glendale festival is also held here, typically the fourth sunday in July, with music and entertainments for all the family.

The location of Wooler ensures its popularity with hikers and those wishing to explore this very scenic and sparsely populated region of northern England. The visitor information centre in Wooler has details of a good selection of walks that start from the town and provide a good introduction to some of the scenic highlights on the area such as Chillingham Park and Humbleton Hillfort - ask them for details when you arrive.

A particular local attraction is the Iron Age Fort on the hill of Yeavering Bell - although little remains of the original fort there is evidence that a substantial settlement once stood here, with a long stone wall enclosing about 130 wooden built huts.

You can find more local travel ideas in the Northumberland guide and the Northumberland guide.
