A fabulous collection of castles dot the spectacular coastline of Northumbria, which has some of the best beaches in Britain. Bamburgh, Seahouses and Holy Island are all memorable, while inland Alnwick and Hexham are wonderful market towns. And of course Hadrians Wall is perhaps the most remarkable ruin in Britain.
Exploring Northumbria should definitely include a visit to Northumberland National Park.
Newcastle is one of the top ten party cities in the world and renowned for both the quality of its nightlife and warmth of the welcome you receive.
