This fantastic weekend break takes in the some of the best that County Durham and the North East has to offer. We visit the "Land of the Prince Bishops" - Durham with its amazing history, stunning cathedral, magnificent castle and cobbled streets, where stylish boutiques and quirky craft shops jostle for attention alongside big name brands. We also include a visit to Beamish the exciting open air, living museum encapsulating life in the North East in the early 1800's and 1900's. All of this plus the stunning and historic City of York will make this a weekend to remember
