The region of Northumbria is located in the North East of England, bordering Scotland.
The region is rich in natural beauty and the past is never far away. There are more castles, fortified houses and Roman remains than any other English county. The scenery is stunning. From the Millenium Bridge to Hadrains wall there is so much to see and do.
I love the rugged coastline and mhe small fishing villages butMost of all I think it is the people of the area that I love the most. They are warm and friendly.
I had always wanted to see Jools Holland in concert on my 50th birthday and Chris arranged for us to see him at Alnwick castle in Northumberland on my actual birthday. It was an outdoor event which started about 7pm. Luckily for us it was warm and we were able to enjoy a picnic of smoked salmon and champagne. Jools was brilliant and was supported by Ruby Turner, Marc Almond and others. It was a birthday I will remember fondly. I am a very lucky girl.
- Pros:So much to see and do
- Cons:Can be cold.
- In a nutshell:History and beauty all in one place.
