Bamburgh Castle. Or at least a small portion.
A Walk Along the Beach at Bamburgh

Bamburgh Castle is a spectacular sight by day but it fizzles out come night time, when it should be at its finest. I’ve no doubt it can be expensive lighting up a full castle at night, especially out of season when there’s few folk around to enjoy the spectacle.
But if this hulking jewel were mine, I’d be looking at ways to light it up so brightly that Tim Peake would be able to see it from his bedroom portal on the space station.

A walk along the beach at Bamburgh can be invigorating at any time of day, and you can walk for miles on this coast. But I prefer it in the early evening, so have your head torch handy in case you decide to march further.
