28thSeptember –  2nd October 2017

It is time now to think further about MNTA’s second 2017 holiday –
four nights and five days in beautiful Northumberland – to stay in
the friendly and comfortable Best Western Plus Gibside Hotel
(}, which
is just outside Newcastle upon Tyne. Come and join us to explore or
re-visit some of the delights of this area, with everything arranged
for you and in good and friendly company.

These delights include on our way up north, time at Renishaw Hall,
the seat of the renowned Sitwell Family. The next day we explore the
renowned Beamish Museum
and after lunch take a guided tour of the City of Durham.
The following two days we shall travel even further north, firstly
to Lindisfarne/Holy Island, with time en route to spend in the
castle, museum and cafés of Bamburgh.
The next day we shall go to the fascinating and much loved Alnwick
Castle and Gardens.
On our way back to the hotel we shall visit Wallington (NT),
the impressive home of Sir Charles Trevelyan. On our last day, we
take our leave of The Gibside Hotel and drive back to Marlow with a
mid-day visit to Kedleston Hall (NT). And there’s more ……..

The cost of the holiday will be £585
per person; single room supplement for all four nights is £39.
Insurance with Simply Groups is optional at £30, but we would add
that all travellers are expected to ensure that they have adequate
personal travel insurance cover. Some days will involve a fair
amount of walking and we take no responsibility for the weather!
However, we can guarantee you an enjoyable insight into the history
and landscape of Northeast England.
