Day 2

Today we have arranged a trip over the famous causeway to the Holy Isle of Lindisfarne*.
Lying just off the Northumberland coast, the Holy Island (as seen on Robson Green’s Tales from Northumberland) is a picturesque, unspoilt village cut off twice a day from the rest of the world by the tide. We also visit the nearby Bamburgh Castle, one of the largest inhabited castles in the country. *The exact order of the day will depend on tidal times.

Later, we travel to the National Trust’s Washington Old Hall, a manor house associated with the family of George Washington, first President of the United States of America.

We travel to York. This beautifully preserved Roman city is a wonderful place to enjoy a couple of hours, with its unique surroundings and a warm ambience. Why not enjoy a cup of tea (or coffee) in one of the cosy cafés around the city before we return home.
