Just south of Newcastle lies Durham, known for its stunning Cathedral and Castle, which are both designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city is also home to Durham University, which provides cultural attractions such as art galleries and museums open year-round. For those who are feeling adventurous, there are plenty of walking trails in nearby areas, such as Weardale or Teesdale, that can provide beautiful views and fresh air.


The seaside town of Whitby offers yet another unique experience – from its picturesque harbour filled with boats bobbing against shorelines overlooked by charming Victorian houses – it’s easy to see why this town attracts so many visitors each year. The beach here offers plenty of activities like swimming, surfing, or just taking in some sun on a hot summer day; alternatively, visitors can explore Whitby Abbey or venture further inland, where there are lots more sights awaiting discovery.

The Lake District

One cannot talk about visiting North England without mentioning The Lake District – home to some truly breathtaking scenery, including lakes like Windermere or Derwentwater, which can be explored via boat rides or simply admired from afar while hiking through trails winding around them. The area also boasts ample opportunities for outdoor activities such as rock climbing or horseback riding, depending on what you’re into – all surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty that makes every visit unforgettable.

Hebdon Bridge

For those who prefer something more tranquil than bustling cities or beach towns, Hebdon Bridge provides just that โ€“ nestled in between hillsides overlooking valleys filled with lush greenery. Here one can find interesting shops selling everything from antiques and collectables to craft items handmade by local artists – plus many charming cafes and restaurants offering delicious food made using fresh ingredients sourced straight from village farms. It’s definitely worth checking out when passing through Yorkshire, too (even if just briefly).
