FIVE DAY (FOUR NIGHT) TOUR
Full Day Excursion to Warkworth and the Northumbrian Coast
Today we see some of Northumbria's delightful coastal villages. Warkworth Castle, birthplace of Harry Hotspur, is a magnificent sight enclosed within the meandering river Coquet. More castles follow at Dunstanburgh and romantically situated Bamburgh, signs of the turbulent past of this border region.
Full Day Excursion to Beamish
The North of England Open Air Museum is set in lovely countryside and vividly recreates life in the North East at the start of the Industrial Revolution (entrance included in the tour cost).
Full Day Excursion to Durham
A short journey brings us to Durham with its superb Norman cathedral. The adjacent castle is a reminder that church and state were never closer than in the time of the warlike Prince Bishops who were based here.
