We look forward to welcoming you to Kielder Water & Forest Park. Please see our Know Before You Go page for lots of useful information including important details on access to routes following storm damage.



The air is fresher here so come rain or shine, the whole Park is just waiting to be explored on foot, by bike, on the water and even from towering view points such as Elf Kirk or Kielder Skyspace. Come for a hearty hike, a gentle stroll, a cultural visit to see our art and architecture, a trip on the ferry, a ‘mooch’ around the shops, exhibitions and visitor centres or simply to take in the breathtaking views. Relax, or be as adventurous as you choose as you explore Your Great Outdoors.
