Back in the summer we completed a two week road trip around the north of England. I’ve already blogged about the first 12 days but didn’t get around to writing about the last couple of days. Time to correct this…
We spent a week in Northumberland many years ago, when eldest teen was a toddler. My enduring memory of that trip is of beaches and castles.
A driving day, albeit a relatively short one, from inland Northumberland to the coast.
Another day discovering Hadrian’s Wall country. Whilst I would happily visit every Roman attraction youngest teen was already muttering we’d done too much ‘Hadrian’ (i.e. one museum, one walk beside the wall).
On to Northumberland, and Hadrian’s Wall, one of the attractions I was looking forward to the most.
Whilst I love to plan holidays I did ask the family for their input into our road trip. Eldest teen decided on Alton Towers; requested as we’d evidently deprived them of a childhood by never visiting any of the Disney empires.
