The NE of England is one of the few places in the UK I haven't visited apart from a leisure w.e to Durham and pit stops on the A1 en route to Scotland. Spent one night in Alnwick too just remembered. The scenery is nice post Newcastle leading into the borders and Scotland. Nice views looking over towards the North Sea. I always feel I want to get my windsurfer out.
