We are delighted to be travelling back to the magical North East of England. 

Well worth the journey. The spectacular coastline, with wide open beaches and rocky outcrops, is home to a number of magnificent castles built to see off the threat of invaders from the sea. This is an area where history really comes alive. We include some of the top visitor attractions in this region with visits to mighty Bamburgh Castle, the famous castle and the gardens at Alnwick plus a journey on to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. 

The sparsely populated and rugged countryside, dotted with market towns where the houses are built from stone, is a wonderful counterpoint to our superb city centre hotel. We return to the excellent 4* Copthorne Hotel, beautifully situated in the heart of Newcastle. Superb quality throughout and a great position for exploring the attractions of this lively and fun city!

Don't miss it - one of our best!

A superb day today as we visit Alnwick Castle & Gardens. The magnificent castle is home to the Duke of Northumberland and has a fascinating history going back 1000 years, up to the modern day as a film location for ‘Harry Potter!’ The multi award-winning gardens only re-opened in 2001 but have been transformed into an exciting contemporary garden with the centerpiece being the iconic Grand Cascade water feature. Entrance included. 

A wonderful excursion today plus we are joined by our excellent local guide for an enjoyable commentary. Taking in the scenic coastline as we head for Lindisfarne – Holy Island. Accessible by vehicle by tidal causeway, learn of the remarkable history of this iconic religious destination. We continue to the stunning Bamburgh Castle – built right on the coast there are stunning sea views to enjoy whilst inside there is a remarkable collection of artefacts exploring the history of the site. Entrance included.
