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.
