Explore Kielder Castle

The scale of the Kielder forest is enough to take your breath away! At 250 square miles it is England’s largest forest. 

A visit to Kielder Castle Visitor Centre will uncover many surprises such as the Minotaur Maze and Skyspace. We have one of England's largest mountain bike trail network and are the home to Northumberland's only breeding osprey population.
