North East England
The beauty of North East England is not only its masses of award-winning attractions and amazing things to do, it's the compact nature of the region, which means you can fit more of them in for every day of your stay.
You can explore country houses and glorious gardens, including internationally acclaimed The Alnwick Garden. We are also home to more castles than any other region in England.
And from coast to countryside you can discover Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Heritage Coastline or the Northumberland National Park, England’s least-populated National Park - there's plenty of choice.
The spectacular Hadrian's Wall is one of our two Unesco World Heritage sites. The other, Durham Castle and Cathedral has been described as ‘the best cathedral on planet Earth.’
Off the Northumberland Coast is the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. In the 7th century it was a seat of Christian learning and home to St Cuthbert.
