Top Sights in Northumberland & County Durham
Few places can compete with Northumberland & County Durham for sheer variety. Its vast coastline of sandy bays, dune-backed beaches and lively resorts offer-up all the classic seaside thrills, while inland you'll discover unspoiled forests, meadows and moorlands speckled with sights from throughout Britain's past.
Grandest among them is Hadrian's Wall, a world-heritage site and a bucket list favourite, but other must-sees include Durham Cathedral, Alnwick Castle, Holy Island and majestic Bamburgh Castle.
A holiday here isn't just about exploring ancient wonders, however, there are cutting-edge cities too, like Newcastle upon Tyne with its first-rate galleries, concert hall and nightlife.
