We had a very interesting visit to the small but very informative RNLI Grace Darling museum during our last trip to Bamburgh. Free entry, lots of historical details, exhibits and videos and friendly staff ensure a pleasant experience. Donations are welcomed but not obligatory and there’s a small shop area as you enter. There are two downstairs areas with interactive models of Longstone Lighthouse and an account of the Darlings’ life at the lighthouse. (Please click on photos if you’d like the full size)
This little chap seemed quite happy to pose for the camera while delighting us with his song, as we enjoyed an afternoon cup of coffee on Amble harbour. He was still there when we left. Hopefully someone else got to enjoy watching him.
