Reviews of holidays and breaks in North East England

Hadrian's Wall, NorthumberlandHadrian's Wall, Northumberland

Castle and other compelling architectural remnants, including Hadrian's Wall, give the stunning landscapes of Yorkshire and Northumberland an ancient and sometimes otherworldly character that make them wonderful choices for family holidays and breaks, but it's not all about forests, moors, dales and beaches. History-sodden York and cutting-edge Leeds and Newcastle are great family city-break options.
