The Northumberland Coast Walk offers some of the best coastal walking in Europe, and in autumn you will have it all to yourself. The dramatic landscape is scattered with castles, coves and cliffs, and punctuated by tiny seaside villages and isolated islands offering a plethora of reasons to stop. There are puffin and tern colonies on Coquet Island, sweeping beaches at Alnmouth and the mudflats at picturesque Lindisfarne. Warm up with a cup of tea after a stroll around the magnificent gardens at Howick Hall, the erstwhile home of Earl Grey, or stock up with delicious Craster kippers before walking to the impressive remains of Dunstanburgh Castle. At the Ship Inn in Low Newton they brew their own beer, with wonderful names such as Sandcastles at Dawn and Red Herring. They do a mean crab sandwich as well. The sunsets in this part of the world are beautiful - dusk at Bamburgh Castle takes some beating.
