Arriva North East, in partnership with the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Northumberland County Council, are delighted to launch the Northumberland Coast and Castle sighting seeing tour, which will operate daily from the 30th June until 4th November.
This spectacular tour will run five times per day between Amble, Alnwick and Berwick, calling at coastal resorts such as Bamburgh, Seahouses and Craster. The Northumberland Coast is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a commentary is provided highlighting the history and heritage of this beautiful landscape.
Iain Robson from the AONB Partnership said “The views from the upper deck of the bus are spectacular. It is truly a unique experience and you see much more than being behind the wheel of a car. Hopefully this will encourage visitors to leave the car and hop onto this sightseeing X18 service.
Nick Knox, area managing director from Arriva North East said: “We’re delighted to be bringing this sightseeing tour to Northumberland. It is a great way to see these truly unique sights, the tour is ideal for all ages. At a cost of just £6.60 per day or £22.80 per week, the hop on hop off option gives you the flexibility to spend time in the areas that most appeal to you. What’s more, by showing your ticket, you can get reduced admission to attractions such as Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh Castle and Dunstanburgh Castle!’
