There’s something “other worldly” about Cragside, near Rothbury – visit Lord Armstrong’s famous home – the first to be lit by hydroelectricty, learn about Sir Jospeh Swan and the lightbulb, ramble through the craggy woodland and have a cheeky zip wire in the playground




wall10. Get in touch with your inner Roman geek and take a walk on Hadrian’s Wall or visit Vindolanda
