Things to do in the North East


Exploring the North East unveils a captivating blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. Start your journey in Newcastle upon Tyne, where the iconic Tyne Bridge dominates the skyline alongside the historic Newcastle Castle. Delve into the region's industrial heritage at Beamish Museum, an open-air museum showcasing life in the North East during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Then, venture to Durham to marvel at its magnificent cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and explore the cobbled streets of its charming medieval city center. Finally, immerse yourself in the rugged landscapes of Northumberland, home to Hadrian's Wall and the stunning Northumberland Coast.
