Day 2

Today we travel to the ancient and historic City of Durham, acclaimed as a World Heritage Site. 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 and the river sweeping round, the profile of the World Heritage Site is instantly recognisable to people travelling up and down the East Coast Main Line. 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's 1000-year-old roots.

Day 3

This morning we enjoy a private tour of 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 state rooms are filled with the finest porcelain, china, furniture and artworks. Blood thirsty weapons glint from the walls and cases, hinting at the turmoil and sieges that have taken place here. An active archaeology dig also reveals the dark secrets of the Anglo-Saxons.

This afternoon you can feel as though you're David Attenborough as we embark on a nature and wildlife cruise to Inner Farne, the largest of the Farne Islands at 16 acres. During summer, Inner Farne becomes home to many thousands of nesting seabirds including Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills, Sandwich Terns, Common Terns, Roseate Terns, Arctic Terns, Shags, Cormorants and Eider Ducks

Day 4

We have a treat today, when we 'travel back 2000 years' - but still enjoy the comforts of our coach, when we take you on a Hadrian's Wall Coach Guided Tour, taking in the scenic Northumberland views. Our guide will join our coach, giving you an insight to a place where two cultures collided, when Hadian's Wall was a frontier.
