Alnwick Castle Tour includng Castle Admission

Summary

You will visit the picturesque seaside village of Bamburgh and take in the superb views of the 5th century Bamburgh Castle. But it is Alnwick Castle that’s the true star of this show. It’s not only a key filming location for Harry Potter and Downton Abbey; it’s also a historic location of epic conquests and royal splendour. Take this trip and become enthralled by Scottish & English borders regions.

Itinerary

  • Alnwick Castle and the Borders - We leave Edinburgh at 8.15am and head south to the Borders. On the way, you will see the gently rolling hills and dramatic coastlines of East Lothian. Our first stop is the beautiful coastal town Bamburgh. Take a stroll to the stunning beach and view the dramatic 5th century Bamburgh Castle sitting on a natural throne of volcanic dolerite.

    In the afternoon, we will meet the star of the show, Alnwick Castle. There is far too much to do here; admire large stately rooms and beautiful architecture, explore the spectacular gardens or learn a little about all the popular films and TV shows that have been filmed here.

    After spending time in Alnwick, we make our way back over the border and in to Scotland. Passing fateful battlefields, we learn about the turbulent past of the Scottish/English border before our journey ends in Edinburgh, early evening.
