Did you Know - North East?

The North East is England’s most northern and sparsely populated region. The area has a very long and bloody history, due to its proximity to Scotland and has fallen under Scottish hands at least once as the border shifted over time.

County Durham has the city of Durham. Its well-preserved old centre has an outstanding cathedral and Norman castle. The village of Beamish has a large open-air museum. To the west are the Pennine hills and the River Tees.

Tyne and Wear has the Angel of the North sculpture towering over the A1. Newcastle upon Tyne has a famous Victorian main street, and one of Europe’s largest shopping malls at the Metro Centre.

Northumberland’s coastline is marked by ruined castles, with Lindisfarne, the “Holy Island“, and the Scottish border just beyond 5 Berwick-upon-Tweed. Hadrian’s Wall stretches for 80 miles from coast to coast and Hexham is a charming small town close to the wall, with Northumberland National Park.
