Northumbria, Alnwick & Bamburgh


'It's a coastline ravaged by nature and steeped in history, there's a story round every single corner… you're not just looking at a view, you're standing in the footsteps of Kings, and all on one of the most dramatic coastlines nature has to offer.' – Janet Street Porter on ITV's Britain's Best View.

Feel the sand beneath your feet and a refreshing sea breeze on this visit to Northumbria, Alnwick & Bamburgh. Northumberland has more castles than any other country in England, some of which you can enjoy on this break with included visits to Warkworth and Bamburgh – whose impressive castles stand guard along the coastline! We also include excursions to Darlington, Holy Island, Alnmouth and York.

Return coach travel


Day 1 – Our first stop is Darlington; this contemporary market town has a pedestrianised town centre that is great for shopaholics! After some free time, we travel to our hotel.

Day 2 – This morning we visit Bamburgh; this beautiful coastal town is set in the heart of Northumberland and is most famous for its striking castle and Northumberland’s finest sausage ‘The Bamburgh Banger!’ This afternoon, we have arranged a trip over to the Holy Island*. Lying just off the Northumberland Coast, Holy Island as seen on Robson Green’s Tales from Northumberland, is a picturesque, unspoilt village that is cut off twice-daily from the rest of the world by fast-moving tides.

Day 3 – Enjoy a free day in our resort of Middlesbrough. The vibrant town centre is packed with independent retailers, cafés, micro-pubs and award-winning restaurants!

Day 4 – Today we visit Alnmouth, Alnwick & Warkworth for free time. You could mistake Alnmouth for being a stolen scene from a postcard, with its colourful cottages and its glistening, golden beach. Warkworth is another beautiful village that is surrounded by the River Coquet and dominated by the stunning Warkworth Castle. 

Day 5 – After breakfast we visit York before returning home.
