The stunning Northumbrian Coast

Wild, rugged and unspoilt. Centuries of history to be unearthed in its abbeys, castles and moorlands.

Touring on the Northumbrian Coast

Wild and rugged, exciting and exhilarating, the Northumbrian coast is one of the most unspoilt parts of England. As traffic and holidaymakers head north to Scotland, this stunning area is left in relative peace and is the better for it. Where else can you walk on a sandy beach which stretches for miles, and not see another living soul?

Dramatic views, sandy beaches and iconic castles abound, making this an area designated for its Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is home to thousands of waders, geese and ducks who enjoy rich feeding available on the mud flats, and in winter, if you are lucky, you can see grey seals which breed on the Farne Islands.

A place of strategic importance throughout history, as Scotland and England battled each other, there are castles aplenty, including the handsome Bamburgh Castle which keeps guard on the coast, Alnwick Castle (where scenes from Harry Potter were filmed), and towns such as Berwick-upon-Tweed which has bridged the gap between countries for centuries.

The Northumbrian Coast is also a place of spiritual importance, with the peace of the Holy Island at Lindisfarne. Many come to find inner peace as they walk the 64 mile Northumberland Coastal Path. The welcome is friendly and genuine, and the area is a secret you will want to share.
