I'm heading off to Northumberland shortly, for five nights, and I'm having trouble sorting through all the castles and stately homes. Which are the must-sees? (I'm staying in Alnwick so will of course go to that one.)
Also, I would like to do some lovely walks--can anyone suggest any particularly good ones? I'm not looking to do strenuous day-long hikes, just maybe up to a few miles through some nice scenery and/or atmospheric towns.
I am traveling solo and will not have access to a car or bike.
Thanks for any advice!
