North East Adventures

The Northeast is full of some of the most amazing tourist spots in the country; its home to 83 castles, about 160 miles of coastline, and 4 counties; Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and North Yorkshire. The biggest cities in the region are Newcastle, Durham City and of course Sunderland, where I’m from.
