Places To Visit In The North East

The North East of England is full of heritage and culture. As a popular tourist location, there are plenty of things to do in this area. From walking along the beach to exploring Durham Castle, you are spoilt for choice.

Here at Hanley Caravans, we have two parks situated in the North East, ideal for you to relax in.

The historical city of Durham has many different places for visitors to explore. The Cathedral has been stood in its location since 1093 and is still a place where thousands go.  Here there is stunning architecture to view as well as a library. Another place to spend time is the Castle. As a World Heritage Site, this location is almost a thousand years old.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, then the Botanic Garden at Durham University is the best place to go. Here you can view glasshouses, carboniferous gardens, and native woodland.
