From the magnificent Bamburgh Castle we walk along the shoreline to Budle Bay, famous for its bird and wildfowl reserve. We then follow a country lane to reach the footpaths that take us back to Bamburgh, with some magnificent views of the castle before us.

Once in Bamburgh, a visit can be made to the Grace Darling Museum, a famous local heroine who rescued passengers from a vessel that went aground in 1838 on the Farne Islands in atrocious conditions, using a rowing boat.

We return to the castle, where a visit and afternoon tea may be taken, with a look at the Armstrong Musueum showing industrial and aviation engineering. For the children there's an armoury and dungeon to investigate.

If you can do this walk on a "blue sky day", then it is a must ! The pristine beaches and sea gleamed and shimmered. Lovely to walk alongside the sea with Bamburgh castle as a stunning backdrop. The old pier is a great place for a picnic. The return along field paths is also very pretty. Very easy to follow - highly recommended !
