This delightfully varied holiday features coast, town and city and is based in cosmopolitan Newcastle, a vibrant metropolis united by seven bridges that span the River Tyne. Newcastle’s bustling Quayside boasts the iconic Millennium Bridge – a graceful structure and the world’s only tilting bridge. Out and about we explore the beautiful heritage coastline and visit the historic county town of Morpeth where you’ll find the thirteenth century Chantry that houses its bagpipe museum. A special treat is our fascinating guided tour of Alnwick Garden & Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland.
Guided tour of Alnwick Garden & Castle
Our day includes an “Alnwick on location” tour where a costumed guide takes us on a cinematic journey around the castle grounds, which have played a part in blockbuster movies, most famously, two Harry Potter films. We also explore the castle itself and the adjoining spectacular Alnwick Garden.
