We all know the importance of rest and refreshment in any group holiday and Northumberland has a rich selection of unique towns and venues that can turn a comfort break into an enriching part of your itinerary.
A visit to Northumberland wouldn’t be complete without sampling some of the county’s traditional dishes and drinks. With a coastline that spans almost 100 miles, seafood is a huge part of the Northumbrian food heritage. Craster kippers are a firm favourite, smoked at Craster and Seahouses using original curing sheds. Earl Grey tea was specially blended at Howick Hall by a Chinese Mandarin for Charles, 2nd Earl Grey, Bergamot was used to offset the taste of the lime in Howick’s water.
