The Beamish Open Air MuseumThe Beamish Open Air Museum
Step back in time to see for yourself what life was like in the North East at Beamish, one of Durham’s hottest tourist attractions.
Beamish is a living and working open-air museum which transports you back to the 1820s, 1910s and 1940s to celebrate the region’s rich heritage, brought to life by people dressed in authentic costumes.
A great attraction to centre on your break to Durham and the North East, with ticket admission and hotel accommodation included as part of your package deal with National Holidays.
The Holy Island of LindisfarneThe Holy Island of Lindisfarne
Holy Island is a must-visit on any break to Northumberland, lying just a few miles off the coast and enjoying a unique sense of isolation when cut off by the tide.
Steeped in religious history and culture, this unspoilt 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 16th-century Lindisfarne Castle and the surrounding wildlife creating wonderful photographic opportunities.
A trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is the highlight of any coach break to Northumberland.

Historic Bamburgh Castle spans nine acres of land high above the unspoilt Northumberland Heritage coastline. There is so much to discover here, including 14 state rooms, the Battery gate, the medieval kitchen and the stables.

Every item in the castle belongs or once belonged to the past or present occupiers, creating a fascinating record of their lives and evolving styles.
