State Room Tours

Overview

Overview

Within the castle's iconic walls are the State Rooms, decorated in lavish Italian Renaissance style, with one of the country's finest private art and furniture collections. This collection includes works by Canaletto, Titian, Van Dyck, Turner, and Dobson; an extensive display of Paris, Meissen, and Chelsea porcelain; and the priceless Cucci cabinets, orginally created for Louis XIV of France.

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.
