Bemish and the North Pennines (160 miles circa 5 hours riding)

A short distance east from our hotel we find Beamish, a finely preserved open air museum that sets an example of everyday life in urban and rural North East England at the climax of industrialisation in the early 20th century. After a visit to Beamist we turn back to the west making ur way into the North Pennines where we enjoy some roads that are favourites among local bikers. We pass through Stanhope where railway enthusiasts might want to visit the Weardale Railway Trust an independently owned British single-track branch line heritage railway that runs between Bishop Auckland and Stanhope.

Northumberland Castles (200 miles 6 hours riding)

We initially head east from the hotel for a sight of the Angle of the North before crossing the famous Tyne Bridge (the forerunner to the Sydney Harbour bridge) then we continue north making our way to the coast and taking our first stop at Warkworth Castle where we shall also enjoy a short coffee break. Our route up the Northumberland coast next brings us to Bamburgh Castle. We won't enter but will stop for photos of the castle and picturesque village before heading inland to another model village at Ford and nearby Etal Castle where we break for lunch.

The afternoon trip turns back to the south making a stop at Alnwick where the castle was used in Harry Potter films and later at Aydon Castle before returning to our hotel
