Arriva North East, in partnership with the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Northumberland County Council, has launched the Northumberland Coast and Castle sightseeing tour, which will operate daily until November 4.

This spectacular tour will run five times per day between Amble, Alnwick and Berwick, calling at coastal resorts such as Bamburgh, Seahouses and Craster.

Iain Robson, from the AONB Partnership, said “The views from the upper deck of the bus are spectacular. It is a unique experience and you see much more than being behind the wheel of a car.

“Hopefully this will encourage visitors to leave the car and hop onto this sightseeing X18 service.”

Nick Knox, area managing director from Arriva North East, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing this sightseeing tour to Northumberland. It is a great way to see these truly unique sights.

“At a cost of £6.60 per day or £22.80 per week, the hop-on, hop-off option gives you the flexibility to spend time in the areas that appeal to you.

“By showing your ticket, you can get reduced admission to attractions such as Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh Castle and Dunstanburgh Castle.”
