Itinerary

Day 1: Travel up to Newton Aycliffe to stay at the fabulous Redworth Hall Hotel. This 17th century Jacobean Manor House, which was once a stately home, is now a luxury hotel which provides peace and tranquillity in beautiful settings. The rooms all have freeview television, tea/coffee making facilities with en suites.

Day 2: Today we discover what life was like in the North East during the 1820’s, the 1900’s and the 1940’s at the Beamish Open Air Museum. There is so much to see and do – from taking a lesson in the school house to taking a tram through the Victorian streets, looking around the old shops with original goods, the farrier, the old pithead and the pitman’s cottages – all with guides in full period costume.

Day 3: Enjoy a visit to Crook Hall and Gardens, which was built around 1217, and is one of the oldest inhabited houses in Durham. The hall merges into a Jacobean Manor house which in turn merges into a Georgian Town house, reflecting its development over the centuries. The 13th century Grade 1 listed medieval hall, provides a spectacular backdrop to idyllic English themed gardens, which are interconnecting with a maze to explore as well.

Day 4: Raby Castle in Darlington is one of the best preserved medieval castles in the North East, steeped in history and surrounded by 200 acres of Deer park. Originally moated and accessed by drawbridge, it was built as a palace fortress and was the home to Cecily Neville – mother of Richard III and Edward IV. There are hundreds of artefacts, paintings and tapestries to see inside, and carriages used by the family in the Coach House and stables in which some have been sympathetically restored.

Day 5: Return to Waterside.
