Hidden gems in the North East
Make this the year you make the most of what the North East has to offer. As well as some fascinating big houses like Cragside, and iconic stretches of countryside like Hadrian's Wall, we look after some lesser known hidden gems from the birthplaces of the great railway engineer George Stephenson to hidden woodlands in County Durham.
We all love this time of year - birds are singing, flowers are emerging and lambs are being born. We've made a list of the best places in the North East to go nature spotting in spring, so all you need to do is pop your boots on and get out there.
