North-East England

The North-East of England (see map below) is associated traditionally with mining, shipbuilding and other heavy industries. However, the north-easterners are 'canny', and have hidden away a number of pearls and gems. Take, for example, the Northumbrian coast with its rugged scenery and beautiful beaches. Then there's Hadrian's Wall, and the vibrant city of Newcastle, with its famous bridge across the Tyne, or the awe-inspiring Durham with its ancient university and iconic cathedral. Go inland and there are appealing towns and villages, and brilliant walks in Teesdale and Weardale. You really must try it!
North-East England includes Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham.
