Explore the beautiful Northumbria region in north-east England – Northumberland, parts of County Durham, and a brief foray into Scotland, for 8 days. It’s not all Romans, ruins and windswept islands – there are grand houses, gastropubs and quirky shops. The tour will be based at just two luxury hotels and includes visits to Alnwick Castle & Gardens, Bamburgh Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, the stunning Northumberland coast, Lindisfarne, and the wonderful towns of Corbridge and Hexham. It’s a large region, wild in parts, with lots of space. There are fewer cars and the roads offer maximum enjoyments as beautiful scenery unfolds in every direction.
