Eileen IdrissiNorth East Welcome The North East will always make you welcome, Feel at home - there is something for everyone. Visit towns and cities like Durham and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Holy Island, Hadrian's Wall and Kielder Forest to see coastal and rural life. The North East sights will make you return To modern, and historic places where there is much to learn. A fine choice of castles like Bamburgh, and villages to enjoy your stay Dotted around the region, and no two are the same. North East people have a special culture, And loyalties of the past have a place in their future. Be welcomed by such warmth and friendliness. Discover - hospitality that is endless.
