5 Day Coach Holiday
Our holiday is based in traditional Tynemouth, an ancient borough nestling at the mouth of the River Tyne. It is home to a moated castle, perched on a rocky headland, overlooking the pier. Owned by English Heritage, this imposing fortress boasts a priory, fifteenth century chapel and a gun battery along with 2000 years of history. The resort’s Tynemouth Park features mini golf and a boating lake while its Blue Reef Aquarium has sharks, stingrays and seal shows. Out and about, we explore the breathtaking coastline taking in Bamburgh, Seahouses and Whitley Bay, visit St Mary’s Lighthouse and discover the inimitable Cragside House & Gardens.

We head firstly to Bamburgh, recently voted Britain’s favourite seaside resort with its stunning castle and sweep of sandy beach. From here, we continue to the bustling little resort of Seahouses where you’ll find an abundance of fish & chips restaurants, souvenir shops and a quaint harbour.
St Mary’s Lighthouse & Whitley Bay
We cross the causeway to St Mary’s Lighthouse on St Mary’s island. This fascinating attraction was completed in 1898 and has an exhibition detailing its history and the island wildlife as well as a souvenir shop and café. We continue to Whitley Bay, a traditional seaside town with sandy beaches and amusement arcades as well as its Spanish City – a leisure complex with a roof garden, champagne bar and tearoom.
Cragside House & Gardens
We enjoy a morning visit to this unique attraction. The onetime home of Victorian inventor, Lord Armstrong, it was the first building in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity. Within its walls you’ll find a wealth of ingenious gadgets whilst the grounds feature a maze, waterfall and lakeside walks.
