The Halloween Special: Newcastle's Dark Side walking tour was great. We were met by the official guide Amanda, who was very friendly and really knowledgeable about the ghoulish side of Newcastle's dark history and murders and brought the whole experience to life. Our group were thoroughly engaged throughout the 90 minutes of the tour, which took us from Newcastle City Centre down to the Quayside. Would really recommend the walk to anyone. Until the next time....

EINFACH EINE SUPER TOUR!

Wir waren im Rahmen einer Städtereise mit einer Gruppe in Newcastle und alle waren begeistert. Unser Guide Alex hat uns super betreut und hat uns "seine" Stadt mit viel Begeisterung und Herz näher gebracht. Wir haben uns nichts vorstellen können und haben gesagt wir kommen wieder, da die Stadt so vielfältig ist. Traditionelle Bauten und viel Modernes - einfach super!

PHENOMENAL GUIDE
Read More
Our guide was phenomenal - perfect blend of history, cultural information and humour. His passion for the region was clear, especially for Newcastle. I don't think I would have properly appreciated Newcastle or been as enthusiastic about it as I now am without the commentary on the evolution of the city.

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!

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.
