Alnwick

Welcome to Alnwick

Pronounced to rhyme with ‘panic’, that’s perhaps what you would do if you missed out on a visit to this bustling medieval market town.

Twisting cobbled streets with an eclectic collection of individual shops are teamed with some of the country’s top attractions, including Alnwick Castle Dubbed the Windsor of the North, Alnwick Castle was the location for Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. Home of the Percy family and Dukes of Northumberland since 1309, alongside is the Duchess of Northumberland’s blooming marvellous creation – The Alnwick Garden.

Dine among the treetops of The Alnwick Garden in the fairytale setting of one of the world’s largest tree houses, or enjoy afternoon tea with a pot of Earl Grey tea, which originates from nearby Howick in a cosy café.

Whether it’s rifling through the shelves of Barter Books, one of the UK’s largest second hand bookshops, housed in the town’s old railway station or catching a performance at Alnwick Playhouse; toe-tapping to live music in a lively inn or exploring the Bailiffgate Museum which brings to life the people and places of Northumberland, there’s always something to do in Alnwick.

One thing is for sure; a magical time awaits you in this spellbinding town.
