Walk along the golden sands of the Northumberland coast, on this walk from Seahouses to the striking Bamburgh Castle. It's a lovely setting with the path running along the beach with the castle making a wonderful backdrop for the duration of the walk. There's also attractive sand dunes, pretty wildflowers and great views over to the nearby Farne Islands.
Starting from Seahouses Harbour it's about a 3 mile walk to the castle along the beach. It's a nice flat, easy walk with a short climb up to the Grade Ilistedcastle. The castle is open to the public and well worth a visit if you have time. There's fine state rooms, an art gallery, a stable block and a 12th century keep which is the oldest surviving part of the castle.
