Itinerary

Day 1: Today we travel to our hotel in Newcastle.

Day 2: Today, we make our way to Alnwick Gardens, which is the inspiration of the current Duchess of
Northumberland. This afternoon we visit neighbouring Alnwick castle, made famous as a setting for the Black Adder series & the Harry Potter films.

Day 3: Today we travel to the market town of Hexham. Once the haunt of marauding Vikings 1300 years ago, nowadays Hexham proudly holds the title of England’s favourite market town – as voted by Country Life Magazine. The town centre is filled with winding streets with Hexham Abbey, the keystone of Hexham’s assets, at its hub. Pay a visit to Hexham’s Old Gaol – an imposing stone cube, built-in 1333 as Britain’s first purpose-built prison. We end our day with a stop in Corbridge, with its boutique shops and cafes.

Day 4: Follow the Heritage coast with an excursion to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, via the historic port of Amble ‘the friendliest port’ and the southern gateway to Northumberland’s coastline and area of outstanding beauty. See the ruins of Lindisfarne Priory & the imposing Bamburgh Castle. (Timings on this day are tide dependant).

Day 5: We make our journey home with a stop en route to the cathedral city of Durham.
