afternoon out, driving between the River Tyne and
the North Sea, try Tynemouth Priory and Castle. You’ll enjoy dramatic
landscapes, soaring ruins, a tiny chapel with pretty stained glass and
plenty of tranquility.
No visit to Newcastle would be complete without a drive to Hadrian’s

Hadrian’s Wall stetches right across the country, and boasts amazing
archaeology, gorgeous walks, rare wildlife and a surprising landscape
which changes from bustling cities to complete isolation.

coastal views. Then turn back and make it a real road trip by
continuing along the entire wall, staying over in some of the other
villages and towns along the way. Try Hexham, also home to a fantastic
Kielder Water & Forest Park, and Ravenglass, an intriguing ancient
coastal village situated within the Lake District National Park.
Whitehaven at the opposite end of the wall is also worth a visit, with
