Arriva in the North East

Life's about the journey, not just the destination

12 April 18

Make 2018 the year you travel and see new places. That doesn’t mean catching expensive flights and living out of rucksack. There’s so many great places right on your doorstep that I bet you don’t even know about!

Historic sites, botanical gardens, blue flag beaches, you name it the North East has it….and many of these amazing places are just a bus stop away!

Start your adventure this weekend, take the opportunity to try that Mexican place in Darlington town (the one you’ve been meaning to try for months now!), walk the dogs through a different park, and maybe eventually get round to visiting Durham Cathedral.
