HERE'S WHAT YOU HAVE SAID ABOUT US
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN OUR CITIES
Spanning seven iconic bridges across the river Tyne, Newcastle upon Tyne is a diverse, vibrant & architecturally stunning destination in the North East of England for you to explore. Discover the key Newcastle highlights on one of our signature walking tours or explore the wider city on one of our private cycling tours such as Posh Parks of the Toon! Why not take in more detail on a themed Newcastle tour? Don’t forget to check out our evening walking tour on our True Crime of Newcastle tour.
By contrast, exploring Durham on a leisurely walking tour could not be more different – medieval streets leading up to one of the largest Romanesque cathedrals, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and along a quaint riverside – discovered best on one of our Signature tours. Our Durham tours offer an in-depth look into this beautiful medieval city. You can also include a custom tour of the cathedral as part of your tour experience.
FREEDOM TO ROAM IN OUR LANDS
If our inner city cycling tours don’t take you far enough, why not test yourself on one of our multi-day adventure tours? Or begin a little closer to home on one of our out-of-town tours which will take you to some of our region’s major attractions, hidden gems, stunning remote beaches & breathtaking landscapes.
Experience guided tours into the Northumberland National Park, journey along Hadrian’s Wall (by car, bike or on foot! – take a look at our full-day tour experience), explore medieval castles, beautiful coastlines & grand gardens with your fun & knowledgeable tour guide! Why not journey by boat to the Farne Islands, our very own “Galapagos Islands of Britain”, home to thousands of seabirds, including the beloved puffin, seals as well as porpoise and whales.
The choice is yours what you wish to do on your next visit to Newcastle and North East England – why not take advantage of our bespoke tour services and build your own custom Newcastle tour? The possibilities are endless and we are there to make it happen!
CASTLES, GARDENS & FILM LOCATIONS
The North East is home to more castles & fortified buildings than any other region in England. Explore medieval strongholds such as Barnard Castle or Raby Castle, discover Pele towers built during the times of the Border Reivers or experience romantic ruins such as Dunstanburgh or Tynemouth Castle.
Our gardens are hidden wonders… From the highly contemporary at The Alnwick Garden to the ultimate luxury (in Victorian times) at Cragside Estate. Find your favourite in hidden corners such as Lindisfarne, Durham or along Hadrian’s Wall…
And then there are great locations seen in movies & TV! Discover the coastal might of Bamburgh Castle, used in part of the Transformers franchise or immerse yourself in history, intrigue & magic at Alnwick Castle, home to a famous wizard and also the set for Brancaster Castle in Downton Abbey (plus home to the Percy family of Alnwick!). Take a look at our half-day Alnwick Castle tour.
There is so much to be discovered – our guided tours of Newcastle & North East England will take you to the highlights but will always find time for the hidden secrets… Take a look at one of our regions in more depth, such as Northumberland and the tours we offer that include grand castles, magnificent gardens & blockbuster locations!
EXPERIENCE THE WILD SIDE
Whether you are in the wild landscapes of the Durham Dales or Northumberland National Park, you can easily spot black grouse, falcons, adders or lizards.
Bird enthusiasts will fall in love during a tour of our very own Galapagos Islands, the Farne Islands – 50,000 puffins, 20,000 guillemots and countless others… The mudflats along the coast are great places to spot migrating wading birds and wild fowl such as pale-bellied Brent geese or peregrines during the autumn and winter seasons.
Along the Northumberland coast you’ll come across several colonies of seals, orcas, smaller whales & porpoise…
On a tour of Kielder Forest & Reservoir you’ll discover the homes of the endangered native red squirrel, roe deer, otters, bats or ospreys. You’ll also find the largest salmon hatchery in England and Wales.
