Whilst some may be jetting off for some much-needed summer sun, lots of us will be staying at home this year. Therefore, what better excuse for us to shout about how much we love it here in the North East and share with you our favourite top 3 spots you should definitely visit this summer. Whether you’re already a local resident or looking to visit the North East soon, read on to hear just how fabulous it is.
First up, is our favourite place for a day trip and that’s Alnwick Gardens & Castle. With the beautiful gardens, always bursting with beautiful blooms, the stunning centrepiece waterfall and even a crazy golf course, there really is something for the whole family, whatever their age. With a restaurant and countless picnic spots, spend the day soaking up the sunshine with an insightful trip to the castle to finish your day. Did you know the castle was used in the filming of Harry Potter? A must for any wizard fans!
You can’t visit the North East without heading to one of our breath-taking beaches. If you’re staying within central Newcastle, head to Tynemouth for your dose of vitamin sea. With beautiful beaches, you’ll also find Riley’s Fish Shack located in King Edward’s Bay. A must for anyone visiting, enjoy delicious seafood whilst sitting on the beachfront itself. We’ll keep everything crossed for sunshine this summer, but if the weather turns, fear not there is sheltered seating also.
And finally, how could we not mention our very own boutique itself. Perfect as a shopping destination avoiding the hustle and bustle of central Newcastle, you’ll find everything your wardrobe refresh needs in our boutique, located in the historic small town of Cramlington. Shop in style and comfort in our small boutique where you’ll receive only the best, most personal service and we’re sure you’ll leave with an item (or two!).
