Kingdom of Northumbria

Park Hotel

Dominated by the Kings of Northumbria from the 7th century, the gently rolling landscapes of Northumberland were for many centuries the battleground for warring clans, and the legends live on among the ruined castles and ancient battlements of today. As an added bonus enjoy a visit to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo in August too!

Included Sightseeing Excursions

The Coastline of Castles

A full day tour exploring Northumbria’s Heritage Coastline as we make our way to Holy Island (subject to tidal conditions), known locally as Lindisfarne and famed for being the birthplace of English Christianity. Then it’s onto Bamburgh, where the mighty castle sits high on a crag above the sea.  

Roman Monuments & a Cathedral City

This morning we head for Durham with its ancient links with Viking invasions and the monks of Lindisfarne. There will be plenty of time to explore the magnificent Norman cathedral which towers above a loop in the River Wear or just wander through the delightful cobbled, medieval streets. This afternoon we follow some of the route taken by Hadrian’s Wall, on our way to Hexham with its stately Abbey and Roman influences (*replaced with a visit to the Tattoo in August).
