Northumberland & Newcastle

Northumberland & Newcastle is best explored with a dramatic drive from the Lake District across the elevated Alston Moors to visit Hadrian’s Wall at Housesteads Fort or the Roman Museum of Vindolanda in the Northumberland National Park.

With perhaps Britain’s finest castles like Bamburgh or the beautiful Scottish border town of Berwick on Tweed, you will be inspired by this area which is also explored from the thousands of Cruise Ship passengers taking Shore Excursions from the fantastic City of Newcastle on Tyne.

Northumberland & Newcastle has a legacy of shipbuilding and many National Trust houses like Cragside. The incredible British Engineering achievements can be best admired at the UK’s best “Living Museum” called Beamish.
