The Land of Oak & Iron Toolkit


Did you know there are more than 60 million visits to the north east each year, bringing with them a spend of over £2.5 billion? Visitors to our region are more likely to engage in history and heritage than visitors to the rest of England (Visit Britain 2015). A successful business must understand the markets they are targeting and the customers they are hoping to attract; knowing your place intimately is vital to be able to use it effectively as a tool.

Land of Oak & Iron has a fascinating industrial heritage of pioneering ironworks, steel furnaces and sword making; a beautiful natural heritage of steeply wooded valleys and a rich cultural heritage of rapper dancing, music and arts. Build your knowledge of our area with our free toolkit, designed to help you grow and develop your business.
