Enjoy the historic dock and quayside and an audio-visual experience of a British ship at war and learn about the horrors of the press gangs.
Today we travel through the Tyne Tunnel towards the beautiful coastline around Tyneside's rugged coastline to the delightful Victorian resort of Tynemouth. Discover its sandy beaches, Benedictine Priory and mighty statue of local hero, Admiral Collingwood, staring out over the North Sea. We continue to Wallsend for an insight in to Roman Britain, as we visit the Roman Fort and Baths at Segedunum. Situated literally at the end of Hadrian's Wall, the Fort formally guarded the wall and the entrance to the River Tyne.
We visit Raby Castle and Gardens, home to Lord Barnard's family since 1626. One of the finest medieval Castles in England the gardens are a mix of traditional 18th century ornamental Walled Gardens, Yew Hedges, Trees, Plants and Ornaments.
