Getting to Kielder Aug 12, 2015
There are no public transport options for Kielder so you’ll need your own wheels, either car, motorcycle or bike. Travelling by car from Newcastle, as many visitors do, will take you about 80 minutes according to the website, and we found this to be an accurate estimate, taking 81 minutes on our journey to Kielder and 77 minutes on our journey back from Kielder. The best route is via the A69 west to Corbridge and then north on the A68. Ignore the first left turn for Bellingham as this isn’t a suitable road for most vehicles and instead look for the brown sign to Kielder Water and Forest a few miles further down the road. In Bellingham, look for more brown signs which will lead you to the C200 and thus to Kielder.

Once you arrive you can park in any of the several visitor areas marked on the downloadable map of the park ( These operate a “pay and display” system, with a fee of £1.50 for an hour or £4.50 for the whole day. Your ticket for the latter is valid in every car park so hang on to it. As there is no entry fee for the park this represents very good value as a whole family can visit for this £4.50.
