Northumberland, United Kingdom

Alnwick in Northumberland is one of those places where you feel like you’ve really come away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Gorgeous countryside and quiet quaint villages combine with amazing fresh seafood and long stretches of beaches, which make it the perfect place for a staycation. There are some lovely walks depending on whether you want a stroll or a full on hike, such as around the beautiful Dunstanburgh Castle, a few miles from Alnwick, or just park up alongside a stretch of beach and wander for a few hours. Also, it’s definitely worth getting on a boat to the Farne Islands, where you’ll experience a blustery hour of observing hundreds of puffins, seals, and other seabirds perched on rocks.

You can’t miss a visit to Alnwick Castle, which played host to some scenes in the Harry Potter movie franchise – you’ll definitely recognise it as you approach!
