Open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm
Historical sites to take you back through time, vast landscapes to explore, and wildlife to make you go ‘aw’. That’s Northumberland. Countless castles jostle for attention - ‘proper’ castles with battlements and portcullises, ghostly ruins guarding endless sandy beaches, and ones that echo with ancient footsteps. There are a plethora of things to do in Northumberland including the Farne Islands, where dozens of puffins await to melt your hearts and at night you can turn your gaze upwards to Northumberland’s famed dark skies.
You will never be short of stunning sights and unforgettable days out when you visit Northumberland. Of course, there's the world famous Hadrian's Wall, Roman Britain's biggest building project that still dominates the county's landscape almost 2,000 years after it was constructed. If you are a lover of gardens and grand stately homes, then Northumberland has plenty to offer. Of course you will have heard of The Alnwick Garden, the finest contemporary garden in the UK, but other equally delightful gardens can be found at Howick Gardens & Arboretum and Cragside Estate to name but a few.
Holy Island of Lindisfarne - A visit to history-rich and beautiful Lindisfarne, cut off twice daily from the rest of the world by fast-moving tides, is an adventure not to miss. There’s a wealth of history to discover on this small, but very significant island, the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels, one of the world’s most precious books.
Northumberland’s Coastal Castles - Northumberland's coastline is strewn with castles and time-ravaged ruins, providing great insight into the county's turbulent past.
Alnwick Castle is one of Britain's most iconic castles and the setting for Hogwarts in Harry Potter. It’s a grand castle that’s as magical as it is historically fascinating. The twice besieged ruin of Dunstanburgh Castle sits atop remote headland between the villages of Craster and Embleton. Slightly to the south and a mile inland sits the cross-shaped hilltop fortress of Warkworth Castle and Hermitage.
Beamish is a living, working museum, set in 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside. Costumed folk bring to life the Town, Pit Village, Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall. Here you'll experience first hand how the Industrial Revolution transformed agricultural life in the region. The buildings you see at Beamish have been brought, brick by brick, from around the region and rebuilt to give visitors a genuine sense of history.
We have always been impressed by the sheer EFFORT your team have put into the company, & long may it continue. In these difficult trading times, it is simply wonderful to see a business succeed and grow in a decidedly niche area; every customer of yours we've met has been brimming over with praise, even when the odd hiccup has arisen [as they will with this sort of activity] so Jenny & I look forward to more adventures at home & abroad with Bob, Kieran & their colleagues, whatever name is on their Tee Shirts. Very Best wishes Brian & Jenny Osborne
