Aerial views

Autumn view across Staward Pele

Autumn view across Staward Pele

Enjoy the best bird's eye views without taking to the air. We picked ten views that we think are simply breathtaking, especially in autumn where the colour changes every day. All you have to do is get there.

Heritage Open Day

Make the most of this opportunity to explore the nation's heritage. Visit the following places for free:

Great North Run

Are you planning to cheer on the runners as they cross the Great North Run finish line? You can park at Souter Lighthouse, the café is open from 7am-7pm, then it's just a walk along the coast to the finish line.

Down the road

Lichfield: A Royal Album. An opportunity to see photographs of the Royal Family taken by Lord Lichfield, including formal portraits and some more informal moments at Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens.
