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.

Walking holidays: Classic Walking Holidays operate weekly starting on Fridays from May through October . Walkers stay at the same hotel for a week. Most days start and or end with a short bus ride so we walk only in the most spectacular regions.
