About the area
Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
The magnificent Bamburgh Castle, set on a basalt crag, dominates this part of the Northumberland coastline and is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to the region. The Castle is home to the descendants of the esteemed Victorian industrialist Lord Armstrong, and is open from March to October. Bamburgh has other claims to fame, however, most particularly as the birthplace in 1815 of brave Grace Darling, who saved many lives from the wreck of the Forfarshire. The village has a very beautiful parish church, St Aidan's, as well as a number of pleasant pubs, restaurants and independent shops. The region is renowned for its golf courses, its wide sandy beaches and the spectacular Heritage Coast. There are opportunities for serious bird-watching at Budle Bay and the Farne Islands.
