The Tower Knowe visitor centre is located towards the entrance of Kielder Water & Forest Park if you are coming in from the south ie Newcastle. Tower Knowe is the sister site to Landal Kielder Waterside and is about a ten minute drive away from it. Here you can learn all about the history of Kielder with our interactive exhibition; younger members of the family especially like the interactive floor map. Visit Café on the Water for refreshments that include yummy cakes, tempting ice cream and tasty snacks plus there is a fantastic view to take in whilst you are refuelling.

Take a look around our gift and homeware store where we have loads of gorgeous things for you to pick from plus you can buy your fishing permit here. Tower Knowe is also a stop on the Osprey Ferry making it even easier for you to visit.
