Local Attractions - What to do during your Visit

Alston is situated in the centre of the North Pennines and is an ideal base from which to explore Cumbria, Northumberland and Durham.
Alston sits at the crossroads of 5 historic trans-pennine routes:
over Hartside Pass (voted one of the top 10 most scenic
   routes in the world) with its magnificent views over the Eden
   Valley to the Lake District
through rural unspoilt Northumberland to Hadrians Wall and
   the historical market towns of Hexham and Corbridge
towards Carlisle and the Scottish Borders
through Weardale and the Durham Dales
over the 'wild' moors of Teesdale to Barnard Castle
It is the ideal walking country, with many footpaths criss-crossing the area, the most famous being the Pennine Way, which passes over Crossfell the highest point of the pennines. The Sustrans PW 68 and C2C 7 cycle ways pass within 400 yards of Greycroft.
It is also a haven for bird watchers, flora and fauna enthusiasts and anglers.
