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.
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 heritage city of Durham is a real gem in the North East and a great place to visit all year round.
Overlooked by its World Heritage Castle and spectacular Cathedral, the city is a magnificent place, steeped in history and culture as well as a vibrant shopping destination.
A prestigious city with the best of both historical and modern attractions, Newcastle-upon-Tyne is one of the largest cities in the UK and is packed full of things to see and do for visitors on our coach breaks, from culture-ridden museums and cathedrals to spectacular shopping opportunities.
