Alnwick CastleAlnwick Castle
Nestled in the medieval market town of Alnwick, Alnwick Castle is one of the UK’s best preserved castles, still inhabited by the current Duke and Duchess of Northumberland.
Alnwick Castle is steeped in history, and its stunning architecture has been featured in many films, most notably as the Hogwarts School of Wizardry from the first two Harry Potter movies as well Downton Abbey and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.
The castle is a fantastic attraction for the whole family, from plenty of Harry Potter themed activities and a terrifying live action dungeon to grand State Rooms, a diverse range of exhibitions and magnificent Garden, featuring poisonous plants!
The Holy IslandThe Holy Island
Holy Island is a must-visit on any break to Northumberland which enjoys a unique sense of isolation when cut off by the tide.
Steeped in religious history and culture, the island is the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels but you don't need a religious reason to visit this area, with dramatic scenery provided by Lindisfarne Castle and surrounding wildlife creating wonderful photographic opportunities.
A trip to Holy Island is the highlight of any coach break to Northumberland.
