Treasures Of Northumbria 2023
5 Days | Half Board | by Coach
Highlights: Cragside House & Gardens, Alnwick Castle & Gardens, Hexham
Among the rolling hills of the Cheviots and the valley of the River Tyne lies some of the finest gardens in the country. First we visit the award winning Alnwick Castle & Gardens – the vision and triumphal achievement of the Duchess of Northumberland. Here the amazing gardens and water features surrounding the majestic castle are almost as well known for being a TV and film location as they are for being a popular tourist attraction. We also explore Cragside House and Gardens, the creation of Lord Armstrong and the first house to have electricity, set amid wonderful formal and rock gardens, lakes and woodlands.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
FULL DAY: Today we visit Alnwick Castle and Gardens, home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and seat of the Percy family for the past 700 years. Here you can discover the iconic castle, used as a backdrop in many films over the years as well as enjoying the beautiful gardens, the dream of the Duchess of Northumberland and now regarded as one of the finest gardens in Britain.
FULL DAY: We take time to visit nearby Hexham, a charming market town close to the ruins of Hadrian’s Wall and dominated by its stately Abbey and Roman influences. This afternoon we head into Newcastle-upon-Tyne with free time to experience this vibrant city or enjoy its charming quayside and famous bridges.
FULL DAY: A visit to Cragside House & Gardens today, an impressive Victorian mansion built for Lord Armstrong and the first house in the world to have electricity. Enjoy the magnificent gardens, lakes and unique Orchard House, all set over 900 acres.
