Retire to the North East

Durham Cathedral North East


The North East is packed with significant castles and monuments. From Bamburgh Castle, perched on the Northumbrian coastline, which was once home to the kings of ancient Northumbria, to the dramatic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle and even Durham Cathedral, you can explore this region’s fascinating history through these impressive structures.

Plus, we really can’t talk about the North East without mentioning football. Football runs through the heart of Newcastle and St James’ Park stands testament to this, with its prime city centre location. Take a tour of the ground or enjoy the electric atmosphere on match days. However, it’s not all about Newcastle United, and other notable clubs in the North East include Sunderland, Darlington and Hartlepool United, so you’re never far from your football fix.
