For a fantastic Easter get away the North-East of England is hard to beat and, best of all, you don’t even need to brave the crowds and queues at the airport. Just jump in your car and you are on your way!
From rolling countryside and miles of outstandingly beautiful coastline, to city life and great shopping opportunities in Newcastle and the Metro centre, Northumbria and the North-East really do have all the activities any visitor could desire.
Designated an area of natural beauty in 1958, the Northumbrian coastline is some of the most stunning in the country and includes some of the cleanest, finest beaches in England.
Perhaps you might decide to take a trip back in time and visit the Beamish open air history museum or check out what Roman life was like at Hadrian’s wall and the ruins at Vindolanda. Alternatively, you could visit a local castle or historic building such as Durham Cathedral, Alnwick castle, Bamburgh castle or Wallington house and gardens.
For something more modern, how about a trip to Gateshead to visit the Iconic Millennium bridge? Or why not take a stroll around the Quayside area of Newcastle with all its bars, pubs and restaurants, and amazing views.
