Discounted entry is being offered to residents to encourage them to visit some of the iconic historic sites which have featured in Tales from Northumberland.

Landmarks such as Dunstanburgh Castle and Hadrian’s Wall have been shown during the eight-part ITV series, watched by millions.

To build on the show’s momentum, English Heritage is offering North East residents a 25 per cent reduction on admission to a number of attractions.

These include Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, Lindisfarne Priory, Warkworth Castle and Etal Castle.

Dunstanburgh Castle and Hadrian’s Wall (Corbridge, Chesters and Housesteads Roman Forts) are also included in the deal.

Lynn Rylance, area manager for English Heritage, said: “The past couple of months have been a fantastic showcase of the North East region and we are delighted to have seen a number of our properties highlighted throughout the series. We are really very proud of our heritage and are working hard to share this and England’s story.”

The offer runs until January 31, 2014, and the attractions are open weekends only.

To redeem the 25-per-cent-off offer, visitors must download a voucher by visiting www.english-heritage.org.uk/northeast. T&Cs apply.
