Whilst the men folk enjoy 2 days at the cricket test, I will be taking the ladies out and about. Have the first day sorted - will spend visiting the castle and cathedral, cruise on the river and a walk around the town area. Leaving the car at home and catching public transport in from our B & B at Belmont. The next day has me a bit stuck. Have spent some time looking at the This is Durham site and thought the High Force water fall at Forest at Teesdale looked good. Can see this is about an hour drive away. Was initially thinking that we should just head to a section of Hadrians wall but am having a bit of trouble figuring out which portion is closest to us. Can also see that Auckland castle could be worth a look. So am asking for feedback as to how to best spend this one day - we enjoy natural beauty, history, and gardens. Looking forward to the suggestions.
