Standing over the market town of Alnwick like a proud parent, the majestic and imposing Alnwick Castle has become one of the most popular attractions in Northumbria. The home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, the castle’s popularity has grown through its use in the Harry Potter films but also due to the stunning gardens, developed personally by the Duchess, that are regarded as some of the finest in England. But Northumbria has so much more to offer and this wonderful five days holiday explores the coast and countryside of this sometimes overlooked corner of England.

Excursions

'Windsor of the North'

Today we make our way to the market town of Alnwick and visit Alnwick Castle and Gardens - the vision and triumphal achievement of the Duchess of Northumberland. Here the amazing gardens and water features surround the majestic castle that dominates the Northumbrian landscape. The castle itself is well known for being a TV and film location, most notably as Hogwarts in the successful Harry Potter films.

Heritage Coast

Today we discover Northumbria’s heritage coastline as we make our way to Lindisfarne, or more commonly known as Holy Island, said to be the birthplace of Christianity. We return to the mainland and to the beautiful small resort of Bamburgh, where the famous castle overlooks the expansive sandy dunes and golden beach. We complete our day in Seahouses, a bustling little harbour village and gateway to the nearby Farne Islands.

Mouth of the Tyne
