World Heritage Site – Durham City   |   Guided Tour Durham Cathedral   |   Beamish Museum   |   Newcastle   |    Quay to Countryside Cruise

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel north with comfort stops enroute, arrive at your hotel late afternoon, tea/coffee on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

We spend today in the World Heritage Site of Durham City, explore beautiful Durham Cathedral where the breath-taking vaulted ceiling soars skyward like the choristers voices and discover its Open Treasure experience which gives visitors access to previously hidden spaces within the cathedral.  Durham is a compact city so you can explore easily at leisure.

 

DAY THREE

Today we visit the Living Museum of the North, Beamish Museum.  This famous open air museum set within 300 acres of beautiful countryside tells the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s.  You will experience town life as it would have been during World War II, visit a 1940s farm, pop into the Colliery and Pit Village in the 1900s and take unlimited free rides on the Beamish tram.

This morning we have free time in Newcastle to explore the city’s many attractions.  At midday we meet at the Quayside to embark on a 2 hour ‘Quay to Countryside’ cruise, sailing to Ryton Willows Nature Reserve and Newburn Countryside Park, travelling under eleven of the Tune’s bridges.
