We are an active family with kids of 11 and 9 visiting the area for a week over Easter. Hopefully we will have great weather to do the outdoor things we have planned such as boat trip to Farne islands, coastal walks around Craster and Bamburgh, visits to Cragside, Lindesfarne and Howick gardens.
However, on a previous Easter trip to Dumfriesshire we had pouring rain for 5 days out of 7 and I want to have a few contingency ideas up my sleeve!
I have found the swimming pool and bouldering wall at Alnwick leisure centre, and plan to visit the second hand book shop there too which should fill one day, but any other great ideas? I presume Bamburgh castle is mostly indoors ? We are not much interested in shopping centres, but where would the nearest cinema be? (We are staying near Wooler). All suggestions welcome.
