BAMBURGH - NORTHUMBERLAND
The idyllic country village of Bamburgh, ancient royal seat of the kings of Northumbria, is set in one of the most breathtakingly picturesque coastal regions the country has to offer. Its enormous beaches go on for miles and the area has featured in many epic films.
With trips to the Farne Island Group so close at hand from nearby Seahouses, Bamburgh is certainly an essential place to visit.
Furthermore, Bamburgh's tranquil and rural setting (just off the beaten track of the busy A1 trunk road) will be particularly appealing to those seeking a base from which to explore north Northumberland.
THE VILLAGE OF BAMBURGH
The village is dominated by views of the Castle. You may find it interesting to note that it is believed that the road you are travelling on was probably covered by the North Sea in the 7th century!
St. AIDAN'S CHURCH
St.Aidan the Celtic monk, who founded the monastery on nearby Lindisfarne, died in Bamburgh. If you visit our beautiful church - do look out for the grave of Grace Darling...

THE FARNE ISLAND
No trip to North Northumberland is complete without a visit to the Farne Islands. You can sail there from nearby Seahouses - just a few miles along the coast road.
