An important part of any dig is the social side, getting to know new people from all over the world who have a common interest in archaeology. Our aim is that the experience of Bamburgh Research Project is both educational and highly enjoyable for all participants. All of our social events are open to all participants regardless of whether or not you choose to camp with us, but unfortunately we cannot normally offer transport between the campsite and private accommodations. Luckily, Belford is well positioned on bus routes and there are local Taxi firms.
There are many different kinds of alternate accommodation in the local area, including other campsites, caravan sites, bed and breakfasts, hotels and self catering holiday cottages. There are even static caravans and holiday cottages available though Bluebell farm in Belford where we are staying - please contact them directly to book these facilities. Booking early is essential as the area is very popular with tourists throughout the year.If you want advice about alternative accommodation we are happy to discuss this with you, but we cannot make bookings or vet places on your behalf.
Below are some links to pages you might find useful as a starting point for arranging alternative accommodation. Please note that these businesses operate as private concerns, and are not in any way connected to the BRP.
