World renowned as a visitor destination, Northumberland is also the ideal location to strike a perfect work/life balance. What better way of enjoying the picturesque scenery and stunning coastline than to sample it on an everyday basis?
Despite being one of England's largest counties, Northumberland offers easy commuting. There's an extensive road network across the county, with the A1 and A69 linking Northumberland with Scotland, the south and west respectively. The National Express East Coast Main Line carves a picturesque route through the county and along the coast, ranking as one of Britain's best loved rail journeys, whilst Newcastle International Airport is also within easy reach. It is a geographically diverse county with a large stretch of coastline, the Cheviot Hills, Northumberland National Park, Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Water and many urban centres along with picturesque market towns. Plus, did you know that government research (compiled by Community Life) found that the North East is the friendliest region in England? Spending your daily commuting time amongst the beauty of the County is just one of the perks Northumberland County Council has on offer!
