The compact nature of England’s North East combines with its amazing coastline, exciting cities and heritage sites giving visitors to the area a wealth of places to see and things to do. Once magnificent castles and a rich industrial heritage sit alongside impressive stylish and modern developments. Our stay is based in the vibrant city of Newcastle where world class culture, inspiring heritage and superb shopping are all encompassed by the famous Geordie spirit.

 

Very highly praised following our visit in 2018, our base for the tour is the superb DOUBLETREE BY HILTON HOTEL which is located at Newcastle Airport. Features of the hotel include a restaurant and bar and all of the very well furnished en suite bedrooms feature tv, hairdryer, telephone and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.

BRIEF ITINERARY

FRIDAY 28TH AUGUST
Departing Newark early morning (please see specified pick up points below) we travel north via the motorway system to the world famous Beamish Open Air Museum. This ‘living’ museum offers a detailed insight in to life in the north east during Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian times. Explore a 1900 pit village, 1940’s town, and an Edwardian railway station all perfectly recreated with original sights, sounds and smells of the era! After a full afternoon here we continue the short journey to our hotel just to the north of Newcastle.

Saturday 29th August
After a leisurely breakfast our coach will transfer us into Newcastle for a full day at leisure. The iconic Millennium Bridge, bustling city centre and chic redeveloped quayside with its restaurants, bars and cultural hotspots are all to be discovered.

Sunday 30th August
Departing our hotel after breakfast, we return via an extended visit to the Hartlepool Maritime Experience – a superb re-creation of an 18th century seaport, telling the story of life at sea at the time of Nelson, Napoleon and the Battle of Trafalgar which dares you to experience life aboard a real British Naval frigate two centuries ago. We then continue south, so home to Newark for approximately teatime/early evening.
