Welcome to the Lord Crewe
The surrounding area is undoubtedly one of historical significance and romance. From the changing moods of the dramatic coastline to the rolling views of the Cheviot Hills the region is as diverse as it is unspoilt.
Bamburgh, once the seat of St. Oswald, King of Northumbria, has played many roles throughout history. From its hand in helping establish Christianity in England, aiding the nearby Lindisfarne Monastery, to being the home of the renowned heroine Grace Darling, who, with her father, rowed to the rescue of nine sailors in 1838.
A little further north lies Lindisfarne itself, accessible by a causeway that only becomes apparent when the sea
recedes each day. A popular tourist destination in the summer, the island's ruined Monastery is a must visit when
in the region.
Joining the A1 from Lindisfarne will lead to Berwick upon Tweed - England's most northerly town. As a town Berwick has changed hands between the English and Scots no less than fourteen times! The town finally became an English town for good - or so it seems - in 1482. The warring past of the town brought about many unique features, of these the Elizabethan walls are the most prominent, so much so that they have been described as amongst the best in Europe!
Inland, and a short distance to the south, is Northumberland's traditional county town of Alnwick. Home to the Duke and
Duchess of Northumberland this gated town is full of rich history, if a little less bloody than Berwick! Not only does
Alnwick have its magnificent gardens but also a dominating castle. Indeed, the film producers of "Harry Potter" films
used the castle as a location!
The area surrounding Bamburgh is unrivalled in its diversity of historical attractions, from the Cheviot HIlls, to the former frontier town of Berwick upon Tweed you can be sure to take away some fabulous memories of your stay.
