  • Holy Island / Lindisfarne the most important pre-Viking Anglo-Saxon monastery
  • Bamburgh castle http://www.bamburghcastle.com/ towering above the sea and beach being the ancient capital of Northumberland (entrance fee £10.95 – either a majority of the group will want to visit inside and we will allocate the extra time for this / or a majority prefers to only visit from the stunning outside and we will allocate a shorter time for the visit – while a minority, who wishes to visit and pay inside could still do so)

In addition to Bamburgh castle and Holy Island / Lindisfarne, depending on the group’s preferences, the timekeeping and the weather, we will be able to stop at 2 or more of the listed places below:

Possible stop in Kelso, one of the most beautiful of the towns in the borders with its cobbled market square, cathedral and Floors castle along the River Tweed

  • Possible stop at Melrose or alternatively along the coast with the picturesque fishing villages of St Abbs and Eyemouth in the marine nature reserve and the stunning beach of Coldingham
  • Possible stop at Dunbar, Tantallon castle, North Berwick and at Yellowcraig or Gullane beach or Roslin chapel (you might remember Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci code”, Roslin chapel is where the bible was “chiseled into stone”)
