Day 1

Departing Henley, we journey to the northeast and to our hotel base for 4 nights - the popular 4-star rated Copthorne Hotel, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Day 2

Our local guide takes us on an all-encompassing tour of Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site celebrating its 1900th anniversary. Take in the iconic views of Hadrian’s Wall where highlights include Heddon on the Wall - the best remaining example of the ‘Broad Wall’ which stretches for several hundred yards. Corbridge - an attractive small market town and Chesters Roman Fort - the best example of a Roman Cavalry Fort on the Wall. At Steel Rigg, we find one of the finest viewpoints along the central section of Hadrian’s Wall before reaching the busy market town of Hexham.

Day 3

Two experiences in one today. Firstly, we visit Bamburgh Castle. Sitting proudly atop its basalt throne, Bamburgh reigns supreme over the surrounding landscape. With stunning views out to the Farne Islands and north to Lindisfarne, you can’t fail to be impressed. The staterooms are filled with the finest porcelain, china, furniture and artworks. Bloodthirsty weapons glint from the walls and cases, hinting at the turmoil and sieges that have taken place here. Next, we enjoy a Farne Islands Experience Cruise - Here, you will feel as though you’re David Attenborough as we embark on a nature and wildlife cruise around the rocky Farne Islands. Trace the resident Atlantic Grey Seal colony, seen on or around the islands or try your hand at seabird spotting looking out for the seasonal visitors such as puffins, eider ducks, kittiwakes, fulmars, guillemots and razorbills. (Please note: This experience is dependent on weather conditions as the boat can only sail in safe conditions).

Day 4

Durham Cathedral is one of the great buildings of Europe. Set grandly on a rocky promontory next to the castle with the medieval city huddled below. Learn about the incredible history of some wonderful artefacts, regarded as the relics of St. Cuthbert, the North of England’s greatest saint whose remains rest at Durham Cathedral taking visitors back to Durham Cathedral’s 1000- year-old roots.

Day 5

After breakfast we leave our hotel and make our journey home with comfort stops en-route.
