Julie Walters, one of the country’s best-loved actors, continues her tour of the most beautiful and interesting stretches of coastal railway routes in the UK.
In this second episode, Julie leaves Newcastle and the city’s famous brown ale, for a high-speed train to Edinburgh. She stops at the beautiful coastal town of Alnmouth and visits the disused station at Alnwick, where the ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ craze started. Julie heads for Berwick and goes out to sea with a lobster breeder, visiting the biggest gannet colony on Earth.
In Edinburgh, Julie explores the intriguing connections between the railway and the famous Balmoral Hotel’s palm court and clock tower.
