A candidate for “best beach in England” in many surveys, this is a white, sandy beach, featuring Bamburgh Castle as a backdrop to the dunes. The nearby town of Bamburgh has a well-to-do feel and all the facilities you’ll need. Holy Island at Lindisfarne is visible to the north, with the Farne Islands out to sea. There are no less than three designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest here (see button to the right). Highly recommended.

A fine vista at Bamburgh.
