Northumberland Coast

Fully Booked

Join Adam for a Discovery Tour photographing the beautiful Northumberland Coast.  With the lowest population density in England, Northumberland is a quiet, unspoilt, and incredibly beautiful county with a breathtaking coastline.  The coastline here is characterised by vast stretches of empty sandy beaches backed by dunes, met occasionally with pockets of dramatic rocky outcrops.  Some of the UK's most imposing castles can be found perched on these outcrops, providing a wealth of delights for the avid seascape photographer. 

We will be visiting some of Northumberland's truly iconic locations, including Bamburgh Beach, Dunstanburgh and Holy Island, while along the way we will explore some lesser known coves and beaches.

To give you the greatest chance of photographing these amazing locations in the best available light, the itinerary has been designed to include three sunrises and three sunsets.  We will kick off mid afternoon on the first day, where, after checking in to your room and following a briefing over an early dinner, we can head out to our first location for sunset.  Two full days of photography follow, with a few hours of rest time allocated after breakfast to allow you opportunity to relax and recharge your batteries (and your camera batteries!).  On the final day we will shoot sunrise and then the tour will finish after breakfast, giving you ample daylight hours to make the long journey home.

With a maximum group number of only four participants, our chosen locations will be uncrowded ensuring everybody has access to shoot that special viewpoint.  Adam will encourage you to fully explore each location to find your own viewpoints and compositions, while helping you capture beautiful landscape photographs.

Our tours are aimed at everybody, from beginners looking for advice and encouragement through to experienced photographers wishing only to be guided to locations.  With such a small group, you can be assured of Adam’s attention, support and feedback throughout each location we visit.

Please note: This tour has been classified as easy.  Most of the locations are accessed very close to car parks, or with walks of up to 20 minutes along flat footpaths.


Our base for this Discovery Tour will be the Victoria Hotel in Bamburgh.  Located a few hundred yards up the road from the spectacular Bamburgh Castle, the Victoria is a charming, historic hotel in the heart of an idyllic coastal village setting.  For more information on the hotel please visit their website.
