Making Great Memories in England's National Park


Could your business benefit from accessing new international travel markets? 

Northumberland is one of nine English National Parks benefiting from £1million funding to encourage more overseas visitors. “Making Great Memories in England’s National Parks” has successfully won this funding from the UK Governments £40 million Discover England Fund administered by VisitEngland.

The English National Park Experience Collection will work with local businesses to develop experiences in our National Parks.  These experiences will have greater appeal to international audiences and will enable the travel trade to create exciting new itineraries for rural England.  We are also looking for accommodation providers to be part of this new collection.

The English National Park Experience Collection

The “Making Great Memories” project will specifically target visitors from Australia and Germany – making it easier for them to plan visits, find experiences and book their trips to England’s National Parks.  This will include:

•    Developing inspiring branding
•    Showing off world class experiential and quintessential experiences on offer
•    Enhancing the experiences available to visitors
•    Tell the story of our landscapes, history and heritage

If you are an accommodation or experience / activity provider located within or on the edge of Northumberland National Park we would love to hear from you.

For more information on the project, how to get involved and the different types of experiences we are looking for businesses to deliver please take a look at the below documents. (Please note, this list of experiences is not exhaustive, if you have an idea, please contact us to talk it through)

The application process is open until 5pm on 18th May.
