We're excited to announce this fantastic trip with Lundgren Tours whether you're new to the area or have never been to see the iconic sights of Newcastle and Durham!

Welcome to the North! Now we know there are lots of places in the UK on your travel bucket list such as Edinburgh, London, the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands but I’m here to tell you that there’s also lots of things to see and do right on your door step in the North-East of England. Join us as we show you some of the most iconic monuments in the North of England such as the Angel of the North and the walk up to Penshaw Monument. In the afternoon we will explore the pretty city of Durham, where its cathedral is the resting place of the Saint who gave way to the Golden Era of Northumbria, as well as being the filming location of some very popular films such as Harry Potter and Avengers Endgame. You’ll also see all of newcastle’s iconic bridges by the Quayside at night and learn some of its interesting history and the pioneers that changed the course of innovation and conquest. Come see what’s so cool about your new home!
