I am tacking on 3 nights at the end of a London business trip in June and am interested in NE England. Have been to London , Kent, York and Salisbury before, but never to the NE. Open focus question, but where to base out of and what should I not miss? Is there a town with access to the far NE (Bamburgh?) as well as Hadrian's wall and Durham (definitely want to see Durham cathedral)? Enjoy castles, churches and pubs.....I guess typical American tourist! Any advice appreciated.
