Holiday Details

Britannia Newcastle Hotel| Half-Board | 5 days | 05/10/2015 | Stretching from the unspoilt wilds of the Northumberland National Park, to the outstanding natural beauty of the Heritage Coast, Northumbria has some of Britain's most imposing natural scenery. Northumbria hosts lush countryside, spectacular forests, glorious sandy beaches, quaint villages and historic market towns mingled with grand castles and ancient monuments, that bear testament to the bloody battles and warring clans of a bygone era. Sparkling cities like Newcastle, Gateshead and Durham are thriving, with lots of shopping and plenty of nightlife. Bustling market towns and pretty villages are scattered around the region. There’s also Durham, with ‘the finest Norman Cathedral in the world’. The area has been home to pioneers across the centuries; the world’s first public railway steamed into life here, and the award-winning Gateshead Millennium Bridge is one of the world’s most celebrated pieces of architecture. The North East is filled with naturally friendly, people who will make time to tell you about the place that fills them with pride. Enjoy a taste of British life here and you can be guaranteed of a truly passionate experience in England’s north east... Things to do: See iconic Durham Cathedral and get spiritual at Lindisfarne.

  • Northumbrian Coast: Included tour of the Northumbrian Heritage Coast, one of Britain’s most scenic and unspoilt coastlines. We begin in Alnwick, a picturesque market town. Alnwick Castle is the largest inhabited castle in England after Windsor Castle and has been the backdrop for T.V. and films including Harry Potter. Then, tides and weather permitting, we visit Holy Island and Lindisfarne, famed as the birthplace of English Christianity. Later, we visit Bamburgh, home of the magnificent Bamburgh Castle, overlooking the seafront.
  • Newcastle: Newcastle and Gateshead face each other across the River Tyne, coming together at the dazzling Quayside. The area is awash with restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels and must-see attractions. Rich in culture, architecture and history, with a great reputation for style and shopping, the breadth and scope of things to see and do in Newcastle surprises even the well-travelled visitors. Enjoy wonderful food, and relax in pavement cafes, traditional pubs and contemporary bars.
