Itinerary

Description

This break is the perfect chance to explore the very best Northumberland has to offer. The rugged scenery and seascapes of this lovely region with its ancient castles, vast sandy beaches and rolling moorland are not only spectacular but some of the most unspoilt of coastal Britain. On this captivating break we also explore the UK’s most significant Roman site, Hadrian’s Wall, and venture across to the unique Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

Northumberland Holidays And Alnwick Castle Tours

Holy Island of Lindisfarne & Alnwick Castle (full day)
We start with a visit to the historic Holy Island of Lindisfarne, lying just a few miles off the Northumberland coast. Only accessible twice a day at low tide, this beautifully unspoilt island is where Christianity first took hold in Britain and is also home to a picturesque 16th-century castle and an array of wildlife.

Featured in the hugely popular TV series Downton Abbey and still home to the Duke of Northumberland and his family, Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in England. The lavish State Rooms contain an eclectic array of furniture, ceramics and art collected by the Percy family for over 700 years.

Hadrian’s Wall & Chesters Fort (full day)
The Romans built Hadrian’s Wall as a fortification across Britain some two thousand years ago. We explore this fascinating archaeological site with a guided tour following George Wade’s Military Road on our way to Chesters Fort, part of the wall and the best-preserved Roman cavalry fort in the country.

Optional Excursion

Durham – £12pp (full day)
For our optional excursion we head to Durham, a handsome University City set on the peaceful banks of the River Wear. The city is home to an array of historic buildings, most notably the Norman cathedral and the 11th-century castle; both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
