Graeme Gallaoway's Anglia
Summer Tour - 7 to 10 August

This summer tour is intended as a relaxed tour and an opportunity to visit several attractions in the North-East of England and South East Scotland.

Day 1 – 7th August (160 miles)

We will leave our start point in Edinburgh (probably Dobbies Garden Centre) and travel the short distance initially to visit the Museum of Flight at East Fortune aerodrome in East Lothian.

After the visit there we will travel south on some cross-country routes via the border towns of Galashiels, Selkirk and Hawick, and crossing the border at Carter Bar. From here we will head south through the countryside of Northumberland to Hadrian’s Wall and Hexham, before turning east and then skirting round the south side of Newcastle and Gateshead to reach our destination of Washington, County Durham.

The Premier Inn, Washington seems to offer favourable rates for our stay (some have already booked)..

Day 2 – 8th August

There is no set schedule for days 2 and 3, however it suggested that we visit the Beamish Open Air Museum on day 2, see 

There are of course many other attractions in the area, including the Metro Centre, Angel of the North, Hadrian’s Wall etc. – whatever takes your fancy.

Day 3 – 9th August
Again there is no set schedule for Day 3, but a visit to the Tanfield Railway, the world’s oldest railway is recommended, see

Both the Beamish Museum and Tanfield railway are within 10 miles of our accommodation in Washington

However check out all the attractions of the greater Newcastle area – there are many.

Day 4 – 10th August (110 miles)

Day 4 sees us return north, skirting around Newcastle on the A1 as far as Morpeth, then heading for the scenic Northumberland coastline. We travel north along the coast as far as Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands before turning inland to Wooler and the border at Coldstream. We will finish our Tour at Duns, where we will visit the recently revamped Jim Clark Museum.
