SKU: 16120092955



Discover acres of open moorland and rugged coasts as we explore Northumberland, delving into a past that shaped Britain many centuries ago. Numerous castles that once guarded the county’s dramatic coastline still command a sense of awe; while along the once notorious northern frontier, the remains of four Roman forts give away secrets of life along Hadrian’s Wall. We spend time along both borders, visiting the magnificent Bamburgh Castle, and Vindolanda, a Roman fort that pre-dates Hadrian’s Wall and played an important role in its creation. We also visit historical Hexham, and Wallington, home of Sir Charles Trevelyan and his remarkable family, set in glorious grounds where red squirrels still play.
