This morning we travel to the imposing Bamburgh Castle which reigns over the surrounding landscape. The state rooms are filled with the finest porcelain, china, furniture and artworks. There are also weapons glinting from the walls and cases which hint at the turmoil and sieges that have taken place in this area. If the tides permit we will visit the Holy Island of Lindisfarne by driving across its narrow causeway. The island is famous for both its medieval religious heritage and its picturesque 16th century castle. After a short break we recross the causeway back to the mainland and continue our journey back to our hotel in Newcastle.
