Your luxurious base in the centre of Newcastle lets you explore one of the most vibrant cities in the UK, but the real charm of this classic tour is the elegance of Durham, the history of Beamish and the beauty of the Holy Island. One of the highlights is a trip to Lindisfarne, thought to be the birthplace of Christianity.
Durham River Cruise
A captivating city with winding cobbled streets and a prominent peninsula crowned with the dramatic cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site – one of the most stunning city panoramas in Europe. Durham is a pleasure to explore and one of the finest cultural and historic destinations in the UK. Includes a one hour Prince Bishop River Cruise offering the best views of the Cathedral and castle.
Beamish Open Air Museum
Beamish is a world famous open air museum. Each area of the museum tells the story of Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian living. You can see how life in North East England changed over 100 years, from a Georgian Agricultural lifestyle to the Industrial Revolution. A fantastic day out.
We visit Seahouses where you can enjoy the bustling harbour of this colourful fishing village. Another stop takes in Bamburgh with miles of unspoilt white sandy beaches to walk upon and fabulous countryside to explore before we skim over the sands and causeway to Holy Island and prepare to enter another world. Thought to be the birthplace of Christianity, Lindisfarne is sure to provide you with an unforgettable experience.
