Holiday Itinerary


On our outward journey we visit Beamish, the Living Museum of the North. Experience the magic of traditional Christmas, with celebrations at the Town, Pit Village, Pockerley Old Hall and the Farm. Late afternoon we continue to Durham where mince pies and tea/coffee will be served on arrival.


Time at leisure in Durham. With its UNESCO World Heritage listed cathedral and castle, charming streets and pretty riverside walks, you'll find Durham a delight to explore. Return to your hotel for an afternoon cream tea.


Merry Christmas! Enjoy a relaxed breakfast, and perhaps take a stroll before a traditional Christmas Day lunch is served.


An excursion to Newcastle today. Watch out for the iconic Angel of the North dominating the Newcastle Gateshead skyline. You can visit the elegant sweeping streets of Grey Street and Grainger Town, hit the sales, or prehaps explore the quayside with its landmark buildings and take a walk over the Gateshead Millennium Bridge.


After breakfast we begin our return journey, making a convenient stop on the way.
