Durham

Durham

Durham, a beautiful historic city in the North East of England, dating back to the Roman times.

Known for its superb architecture, vibrant culture and rich history, Durham is a popular holiday destination with many fantastic attractions. 

Discover Durham Cathedral, one of the most impressive cathedrals in the world, with its 1,000-year history and stunning collections of manuscripts, embroideries, and other historic objects. It’s also a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site with beautiful Norman architecture and spectacular stained-glass windows.

Explore other iconic landmarks in the city, such as the 11th century Durham Castle and the medieval Durham City Walls. These fascinating attractions provide a unique insight into the history of the city, offering a glimpse into the lives of people who once lived there. Take a stroll around the quaint cobbled streets, exploring the shops, museums and art galleries, before relaxing with a drink in a cosy pub.

The city is known for its thriving arts scene, with several cultural festivals taking place throughout the year. Durham is a wonderful destination for a coach holiday, whether you’re interested in history, the arts, or you’re looking for a relaxing break away in an attractive city.

The Holy Island

The Holy Island

Holy Island is a must-visit on any break to Northumberland which enjoys a unique sense of isolation when cut off by the tide.

Steeped in religious history and culture, the island is the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels but you don't need a religious reason to visit this area, with dramatic scenery provided by Lindisfarne Castle and surrounding wildlife creating wonderful photographic opportunities.

A trip to Holy Island is the highlight of any coach break to Northumberland.
