Coast & Castles Sightseeing Tour

Enjoy the Northumberland Coast with our Sightseeing Tour


Enjoy the Northumberland Coast with our Sightseeing Tour

We have teamed up with Northumberland County Council to offer a sightseeing tour of the spectacular coast and countryside on service X18 between Berwick, Seahouses, Alnwick and Amble.

The North Northumberland Coast is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a commentary* is provided on selected journeys every day to tell you about the heritage and history of this beautiful landscape. To experience the sightseeing tour travel on one of the orange shaded journeys in the X18 timetable.

The X18 is a great way to discover the charm of North Northumberland, whether you want a scenic bus ride, a walk in the fresh air along the shoreline and cliff tops or a visit to one of the magnificent castles that abound in this beautiful corner of England.

Northumberland has more castles than any other county in England, and several stand sentinel along this dramatic coast, all easy to get to on the X18. They vary from the stark, lonely ruin of Dunstanburgh (a 2 ½ mile walk from the fishing village of Craster) to the vastness of Bamburgh, the unique atmosphere of Lindisfarne across the water on Holy Island and the magnificence of Alnwick, lived in by the Percy family and the Dukes of Northumberland since 1309.

Show your bus ticket to recieve a 20% discount off the full admission price at Bamburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle, Alnwick Castle, Lindisfarne Castle and Dunstanburgh Castle.
