Day Trip Must Sees

Day Trip Must Sees

Overview

There’s so much to pack into your trip it is impossible to see all of the Park in a day but here are your top must sees – the attractions that are too good to miss. Pick and choose whichever fit your timings best! Don’t forget to check opening times for the attractions below before you set off.

Kielder Observatory
Throughout the year there are events on at the Observatory – check www.kielderobservatory.org for details. When there are no events on, visitors are still welcome to visit the Observatory and walk around the decking but the interior facilities will be closed.

Osprey Ferry
The ideal way to see Kielder Water in style. Always check the ferry timetable before setting out. You can board the ferry at Leaplish Waterside Park or Tower Knowe Visitor Centre.

Lakeside Way
Choose a section to walk, run cycle or ride. See our downloadable Trails Guide for available routes.

Kielder Castle
Kids especially will love the Minotaur maze.

Leaplish Waterside Park
Great for a spot of lunch at the Boat Inn restaurant and bar. There’s also a heated pool.

Tower Knowe Visitor Centre
An interactive new exhibition about the history of Kielder Water and everything there is to do in the Park now.

Red squirrel hide
You’re almost guaranteed to see a red squirrel – one of the last remaining strongholds in England.
