The Tour of Britain takes a tour of James Burrell

The Tour of Britain officially kicks off on the 7th September, however on its course to the finish on the 14th September, the riders will be taking the route past two of our branches.

Stage 3 of the race which starts on 9th September will head past our Morpeth branch and stage 4 which begins the next morning on the 10th September will see the riders venture onwards travelling past our Gateshead branch.

It's sure to be a great watch if you can manage to catch a glimpse of them somewhere on either of their routes and if you're planning a visit, why not call into one of our branches on the day? There are going to be a few disruptions on the road, so why not make the most of it and call in for a chat, a free cuppa and a bite to eat.

There'll be a few roads fully closed and you can find out detailed information on this over on the Tour of Britain website
