Guided  Walking in Britain

Northumberland     Alnmouth

Northumberland in England's north-east has one of the country's most magnificent  coasts with sweeps of sand punctuated by fishing villages and castles including Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Alnwick with its lovely gardens. Hadrian's Wall is here and the Holy Isle of Lindisfarne founded in 635. The walks sample both the coastline and moorland scenery of Northumberland.
