Enjoy the beautiful Northumberland Coast and the dramatic scenery of the iconic Holy Island, along with visits to historic Durham and Beamish; one of Britain’s finest open-air museums.


<p class="p1">The heritage city of Durham is a real gem in the North East and a great place to visit all year round.</p> <p class="p1">Overlooked by its World Heritage Castle and spectacular Cathedral, the city is a magnificent place, steeped in history and culture as well as a vibrant shopping destination.</p> <p><a href="../britain/england/durham" target="_blank">see more</a></p>

<p>Step back in time to see for yourself what life was like in the North East at Beamish, one of Durham&rsquo;s hottest tourist attractions.</p> <p>Beamish is a living and working open-air museum which transports you back to the 1820s, 1910s and 1940s to celebrate the region&rsquo;s rich heritage, brought to life by people dressed in authentic costumes.</p> <p>A great attraction to centre on your break to Durham and the North East, with ticket admission and hotel accommodation included as part of your package deal with National Holidays.</p> <p><a href="../britain/england/beamish-open-air-museum" target="_blank">see more</a></p>

<p class="p1">Holy Island is a must-visit on any break to Northumberland, lying just a few miles off the coast and enjoying a unique sense of isolation when cut off by the tide.</p> <p class="p1">Steeped in religious history and culture, this unspoilt island is the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels but you don't need a religious reason to visit this area, with dramatic scenery provided by 16<span class="s1"><sup>th</sup></span>-century Lindisfarne Castle and the surrounding wildlife creating wonderful photographic opportunities.</p> <p class="p1">A trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is the highlight of any coach break to Northumberland.</p>
