Small Group Tours in North East England

Unique Tours in Durham, Newcastle, Northumberland, and the Scottish Borders with Your Own Expert Guide

Forming part of the medieval kingdom of Northumbria, there is a wealth of wonderful things to see on our Northumberland, Durham and Scottish borders tours. Northumberland has the highest density of castles in England, with other famous landmarks including the incredibly well-preserved Roman structure, Hadrian’s Wall – a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a range of other Roman forts and structures along it (check out our Hadrian’s Wall day tour if you’d like to learn more).

Another extremely popular Northumberland attraction is the Holy Island of Lindisfarne: an old priory on an island that is only accessible when the tide is out and you can drive along the land bridge. Check out our Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castle tour to see it for yourself!

The Bishops of Durham held incredible power and influence on the British Isles, from holy men through to warrior bishops their influence was felt far beyond our shores – discover their cathedral and palaces on our Durham and Bishop Auckland Tour.

And if discovering the ancient world excites you, our Ancient Northumberland Day Tour will take you far into the past, to discover a world emerging from the ice age.
