Leaving your pick-up point, this morning we'll take a leisurely journey north. We'll make comfort stops en route, and should arrive at your hotel in the Tyneside area in plenty of time for dinner.
Today we head to Lindisfarne, one of the cradles of early British Christianity and only accessible, to cars and coaches, across the narrow causeway at low tide. We'll also stop in Bamburgh, where the great sandstone castle overlooks the Farne Islands, before we return to the hotel for dinner.
After breakfast, this morning, we'll head to Newcastle, and board Magellan before she sets sail at lunchtime. As you skirt the coast you'll have time to meet fellow passengers, and enjoy the ship's fine facilities, first-class entertainment programme and excellent five-course dining.
Our coach will be waiting to meet you and carry you home after you disembark Magellan in Tilbury, this morning.
