North East England

UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE ROMAN FRONTIER

One of our personal favourite places within the North East England region has to be the Durham Dales, consisting of Weardale & Teesdale. Both unique in their own rights can be easily visited in one day. August is the time of year to see the huge fields heather in full bloom but, personally, we find any time of year quite special in the dales.

As part of your tour through the Durham Dales you can expect to see wildlife, empty roads travelling off the beaten path, small village charm & some real highlights such as the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle (beautiful in itself) or the stunning village of Blanchland (technically Northumberland)…

Come on a spectacular tour with us to forgotten lead mines, fabulous views & great tales of past and present.
