Trains to Alnmouth glide along the quaint East Coast Main Line with the North Sea twinkling on the horizon - and it's a fitting way to arrive in this charming Northumberland town. The station itself opened in 1847, and although little survives of the original structure, it remains a delightful little railway outpost. It's also right at the end of the Aln Valley Heritage line, which is being reconstructed. Northern Rail manages the station and trains run every couple of hours to Newcastle and Edinburgh. Alnmouth was once an important grain port, but the arrival of rail saw the town blossom into a popular seaside resort - and you couldn't wish for a more picturesque waterside holiday destination. When visitors aren't building sandcastles, they're riding horses across the coastline at Alnmouth beach. Other highlights include Britain's smallest museum, The Ferryman's Hut and the Castles Cycle Route taking in the heady sights of the North Sea.
