Group travel

Intriguing history, spectacular scenery and a wealth of world-class attractions offering personalised tours makes Northumberland the perfect year-round group travel destination. 


Northumberland’s beautiful scenery whether from the uplands of the North Pennine Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the Northumberland National Park and the awesome beauty of our long, lovely coastline guarantees all-important wow-factor views from coach windows.


Visits to award-winning visitor attractions can be woven together to provide compelling and completely individualised itineraries while Northumberland’s history and heritage, art and cultural interests and wildlife experiences are second to none.


Your clients can photograph the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site while enjoying afternoon tea a stone’s throw from archaeology over 2,000 years old. They can be inspired by the absorbing stories of the early Christian saints who helped shape the destiny of 7th century Northumbria in places as beautiful as the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Bamburgh and Hexham.


They can explore and shop for souvenirs at lively market towns like Berwick upon Tweed, Morpeth, Alnwick, Rothbury and Hexham and enjoy the individuality of local Northumbrian crafts.
Add a touch of class to any tour with completely individualised itineraries. How about a tour of a world famous garden delivered by its owner, or a behind the scenes castle tour? You could book a Northumbrian food-themed lunch accompanied by traditional live music and treat your clients to a real taste of Northumberland.


Group-travel friendly attractions including castles and stately homes offer attractive discounted group rates and all-important facilities for drivers to rest and refresh.

Northumberland has a fine selection of inns and hotels catering for group travel dining and accommodation requirements whatever the budget, with facilities for drivers and guides and ample coach parking too.


Whatever your clients’ interest, from archaeology and culture to local food and drink, painting or golf, Northumberland has something for everyone and enough to pack every day of your tour.
For conference organisers, Northumberland has many special and unique venues who will work with you to achieve the very best for your delegates.


Cruise ground handlers are increasingly finding shore excursions to Northumberland attractions are rated among the best by discerning cruise passengers, while youth and school groups can rest assured that attractions will help you deliver learning opportunities in a fun and safe environment.


“As a North East England Blue Badge guide I can confidently say that Northumberland offers a stunning mix of ingredients which make an outstanding group travel experience. Northumberland hotels and inns will look after your clients warmly and attentively. The visitor attractions are full of promise and interest. And all of us operating in Northumberland’s group travel trade market work to the highest customer care values. We would love to welcome your clients here and we will try our best to inspire you with ideas all year round.”
