Description

Stretching from the Irish Sea in the west to the North Sea in the east, and from the Scottish Border in the north to the extremities of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales in the south. Northumbria is home to a breathtakingly diverse landscape -- waterfalls, forests, moorlands, hills, rivers, valleys and golden beaches. Other features include castles, strongholds and fortifications, which reflect centuries of border warfare, whilst the world-famous Hadrian's Wall, stretching from coast to coast right across the region, marks the North western extremity of the Roman Empire. Once again, Talbot and Whiteman offer a beautiful and informative insight into the English countryside in this awe-inspiring tour of Northumbria.show more
