Bristol is a bustling maritime city, where the historic rubs shoulders with the contemporary. But travel a little outside the city, for example to the North or the South and visitors are greeted with some of England’s finest countryside, quaint villages and a real flavour of this picturesque corner of England.
The North East of England has a distinctive character of its own. Bursting with heritage and many a story to tell, this itinerary packs hundreds of years of history into two days, for a real taste of the North East.
Commanding castles, rich history, ancient fortifications and picturesque surroundings abound in this two day trip around Newcastle, Durham and Hadrian’s Wall.
This five day rail and self-drive itinerary is a fantastic introduction to the South West’s wonderful seafood, wine and even tea!
