Welcome to the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark

Bowlees Visitor Centre

Thursday 2 July 2020 – update for our visitors

Guided by the latest official advice, we are working hard on preparations to safely welcome you back in a few days’ time.
We will update you as soon as we are able to, on social media and on our website. For the moment, the centre and the toilets are closed, but the car park is open.

Read our latest update

Bowlees Visitor Centre is run by the North Pennines AONB Partnership, and is a gateway to the AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark. Here you can find information about things to see and do across the North Pennines, take part in our nature and landscape themed events, and explore the site. It is a great place to start exploring the surrounding countryside of Upper Teesdale.
