Susan Calman’s Grand Day Out: Northeast England airs Friday 6 October 2023 on Channel 5.

What is this episode about

Susan Calman is back for more Grand Days Out, and this time she’s taking her vintage campervan, named after Helen Mirren, on the road. She plans to soak up as much happiness and beauty as she can while touring Britain.

Susan travels to the northeastern corner of England in the first volume, where she visits the Pennines and the coast of Northumberland. While on the road, Susan takes in the scenic views of the North Pennines, a section of the Heritage Coast, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Susan goes on a safari in the breathtaking Northumberland National Park, which she describes as “very British.” The local wildlife is incredibly sociable and, sadly, quite hungry. Then, she drives Helen across a tidal causeway to the picturesque island of Lindisfarne, where she learns the ins and outs of her dream job as a landscape photographer and hears stories of Viking raids.

Aboard a boat bound for the striking seabird colonies of the Farne Islands, she takes in the best of the Northumberland Coast and discovers that it was made famous by one of the most celebrated female heroines of the Victorian era, who rescued shipwrecked passengers near Longstone Lighthouse.

In the beautiful North Pennines, she meets a rescue sheep flock, of which one takes a special interest in her. Although Barbara is unable to accompany her, their story does not end here. The shepherdess, it seems, fashions fine headgear out of their fleeces, and Barbara looks especially good in one.

Susan takes on the challenge of driving an obstacle course in a power-turn buggy by trading in her hat for a helmet. It’s a fantastic way to take in the beautiful scenery, but as Susan learns, you have to be careful not to let yourself get sidetracked by the sights.
Jon looks into whether it’s worth it to try to replicate a coffee shop experience at home. He investigates whether or not you need to spend a lot of money on a domestic coffee machine by contrasting a high-end model with a more affordable model. And Georgie discusses the environmental and financial impacts of car ownership and driving.
