Northumberland, Hadrian’s Wall, Holy Island & Alnwick Castle

Ancient castles, vast sandy beaches and rolling moorland: the rugged scenery and seascapes of Northumberland are not only spectacular but some of the most unspoilt of coastal Britain. We’ll also explore the UK’s most significant Roman site and venture across to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

Jurys Inn

Overlooking the Tyne and the Millennium Bridge, we stay at the conveniently-located Jurys Inn, Newcastle Gateshead Quays. The hotel features spacious en-suite rooms with tea and coffee-making facilities as well as a relaxing restaurant and bar.

Holy Island of Lindisfarne & Alnwick Castle (full day)

We start with a visit to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, lying just a few miles off the Northumberland coast. Only accessible twice a day at low tide, this beautifully unspoilt island is where Christianity first took hold in Britain and is also home to a picturesque 16th-century castle and an array of wildlife.

Still home to the Duke of Northumberland and his family, Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in England. The lavish State Rooms contain an eclectic array of furniture and art collected by the Percy family over the centuries. Alnwick also featured in the hugely popular TV series Downton Abbey.

Hadrian’s Wall & Chesters Fort (full day)

The Romans built Hadrian’s Wall as a fortification across Britain some two thousand years ago. We’ll explore this fascinating archaeological site with a guided tour following George Wade’s Military Road on our way to Chesters Fort, part of the wall and the best-preserved Roman cavalry fort in the country.

Optional Excursion

Durham – £11pp (full day)

For our optional excursion we head to Durham, a handsome University City set on the peaceful banks of the River Wear. The city is home to an array of historic buildings, most notably the Norman cathedral and the 11th-century castle; both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
