Northumberland is a city in the north of Newcastle and only spend around 30 minutes to get there from Newcastle. Northumberland can be explained by three words : green, blue, brown. Bloody gorgeus scenery. The green grass, the blue sea, and the brown castle will amazingly surprise you.
1. The Alnwick Castle
This is the most interesting place I would visit but unfortunately my tour bus just passed the castle! Poor me. Alnwick Castle is the place where Harry Potter scenes took place (at the first year in learning quidditch). Amazing, huh. One day I have to go to the castle and come inside, because there is the broom stick which we can take the photo while driving it.
2. Holy Island
Holy island located near Northumberland separated by the sea. We can cross the street to the island in the certain times, during low tide. There are 2 famous castles over holy island : Lindisfarne Castle and Bamburgh Castle.
3. Lindisfarne Castle
Only one word I can describe : AWESOME.
4. Bamburgh Castle
How to spell Bamburgh? Here it is : Bam-bere. It also applied in Edinburgh speeling, we spell ‘Edin-bere‘ instead of ‘Edinburgh’. Funny, huh..
We can enter the castle with £9 cost, or £7.2 within group consist of 15 persons. There are a lot of historical things inside the castle. The castle ever being the film location as well, such as Ivanhoe, El Cid, Marry, Queen of Scots, and Elizabeth.
After walking through the castle, you can buy some souvenirs and enjoy some home-made rum & raisin.
