Sometimes, it does rain...
Things to do on a wet day
As we explain on our 'Weather' page, the Northumberland Coast is one of the driest places in the UK. But even so, we do receive an average of about 600mm of rainfall each year - so it's good to have some wet-weather alternatives at hand. Here are some suggestions!
Visit Bamburgh Castle
Visit the RNLI Grace Darling Museum in Bamburgh
Visit Lindisfarne Castle.
Visit Chain Bridge Honey Farm, where they have a very interesting indoor dispaly, and a tea-shop.
Go sit in Barter Books all day.
Visit Alnwick Castle.
Visit the Bailiffgate Museum in Alnwick.
Go sit in the Ship with a pint and the papers.
Sit upstairs in the Bamburgh Castle Inn, and watch the weather - spectacular!
Put your waterproofs on and get out for a walk.
Curl up on the sofa with a bottle from the bar and a good book. Or just snooze.
Stay in bed with a bottle of bubbly, and whoever you came with...
