Attraction Information

Tower Knowe Visitor Centre is a great place to discover the rich history of Kielder Water and Forest Park, with an interesting interactive exhibition in the Explore Centre that is full of interesting information. It is also a good way to discover what you can do and where in a park that has the largest man made lake in Northern Europe.
You can take in beautiful views across the water, or explore the 26mile (42km) Lakeside Way on foot or by bike. You can also walk to Kielder Dam or the nature reserve at Falstone Moss.
If you like fishing, you can get a starter kit, plus tackle on site. Or if you would like to try your hand at sailing, there is a club, which welcomes new members.
You can also board the Osprey ferry to take in the sights. This is a nice relaxing way to tour the lake, although it will need to be pre booked.
