An entertaining cast of characters shows you what life was really like in the middle ages, from skilled artisans and expert falconers to artful jesters and a frankly inexplicable alchemist!

Access information

Alnwick Castle is a large visitor attraction, comprising a range of historical buildings and sweeping grounds, including an Inner and Outer Bailey and ‘Capability’ Brown landscapes. Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of the castle and its grounds, disabled access is limited in some areas.

The grounds of the castle include a variety of surfaces, including cobblestones, flagstones, grass, gravel and wood. These can be uneven and steep in places, with a number of steps on the Gun Terrace.

For further information regarding accessibility, as well as wheelchair/mobility scooter hire, please contact or 01665 511100
