Wooler

Wooler is a small town in Northumberland, England. You've added Floors Castle & Gardens, Eyemouth Museum, Preston Tower, and other attractions to your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Cheviot Hills and St Cuthberts Way. Your inner history buff will appreciate Mellerstain House & Gardens and Thirlestane Castle. Explore Wooler's surroundings by going to Norham Castle (in Norham), William Wallace Statue (in St. Boswells) and Selkirk (Sir Walter Scott's Courtroom, Halliwell's House Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Manderston House, walk around Hawick Museum, get engrossed in the history at Trimontium Museum Trust, and don't miss a visit to Lady Waterford Hall.

Famous for its unspoiled natural beauty, Northumberland is considered one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in the entire UK. The region is best explored by car, on the county's well-maintained and very quiet roads. Visitors to the area often report driving distances of over 100 km (70 mi) and meeting only a dozen other cars. In a country so modernized and populous, it's hard to imagine such an undiscovered area of wilderness and tranquility. As you drive over the rugged landscape, only a few houses and some secluded villages dot the horizon. With a mere hour separating it from the Scottish capital, it has a distinctly Scottish feel.
