COAST & SEAHAM (HALF DAY): We take you on a journey along the Durham Heritage Coast - one of the finest coastlines in England - as we make our way to the lively harbour town of Seaham. Here, we suggest visiting the Seaham Harbour Marina, or perhaps grabbing an ice cream and walking along the coastal footpath enjoying breath taking views. We return to the hotel for the afternoon at leisure.


(HALF DAY): Durham has often been described as the "perfect little city," here you can shop for gourmet treats, locally produced food or find a charming café and watch the world go by.


ISLAND (FULL DAY OPTIONAL EXCURSION) Bamburgh, is a beautiful coastal town, set in the heart of Northumberland, most famous for its striking castle and Northumberland's finest sausage 'The Bamburgh Banger'! Later, we have arranged a trip over to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne*. Lying just off the Northumberland Coast, Holy Island, as seen on Robson Green's Tales from Northumberland, is a picturesque, unspoilt village that is cut off twice-daily from the rest of the world by fast-moving tides. On our return to the hotel, we visit Alnwick, Alnwick Castle is one of Britain's most iconi and stared as Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films!

(*tides dependent).
