Four Tours to try This Weekend


From breweries to 19th-century waggonways, these tours make for top weekend trips

The Victoria Tunnel, Newcastle

The Victoria Tunnel is a preserved 19th-century waggonway under Newcastle, stretching from the own Moor to the River Tyne. It was originally built to transport coal from Spital Tongues Colliery and was converted into an air-raid shelter during World War Two. Now you can take a tour through it to learn about its construction, with single-household one-hour tours fully revised to meet government guidelines and advice.

Raby Castle is open for you to enjoy at your own pace. Friendly guides are available in various rooms, sharing stories and details of Raby’s fascinating history and showcasing the castle’s art collection and luxurious interiors. Discover the medieval, regency and Victorian aspects of the castle and be king or queen for the day.

South Causey Inn, Stanley
01207 235555
Discover what goes into the perfect pint with the brewery tour at South Causey Inn. If you're looking for a fun day out, this is sure to be something you'll remember, as long as you take it easy on the tasting – and don’t forget to stay for the brewer’s lunch.

Sunderland Empire

While the staff at Sunderland Empire reschedule their live performances, why not take this unique opportunity to find out more about the Edwardian theatre? See behind the scenes, dressing rooms and the stage from angles you’ve never experienced, before the curtains come up again in the future.
