On our journey home, we visit the excellent Cragside House & Gardens, former home of the famous inventor, Lord Armstrong. In 1878, Cragside was the first house in the world to be lit by hydro-electricity and it is crammed full of ingenious gadgets - most of them still working - as well as an eclectic collection of British art, furniture, ceramics and natural history. Outside the house, one of the largest rock gardens in Europe leads down to the Iron Bridge, which in turn leads to the lovely formal gardens. Please note, the terrain at Cragside House is uneven with steep footpaths, many of which are unsuitable for wheelchair users.
