Inspired by Alnwick

Alnwick

Twisting cobbled streets with an eclectic collection of individual shops are teamed with some of the country’s top attractions in this bustling medieval market town. Pronounced to rhyme with ‘panic’, that’s what you’ll do if you don’t visit!


Marvel in the grandeur of Alnwick Castle

The Grand Cascade at Alnwick Garden

The Grand Cascade at Alnwick Garden

From the imposing exterior to sumptuous State Rooms, there’s nowhere quite like Alnwick Castle. Discover a family history brimming with drama, including a gunpowder plotter and the infamous medieval knight Harry Hotspur. Take part in Broomstick Training, inspired by the castle’s starring role as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films.

Lose yourself amongst the shelves of Barter Books

Once the Victorian railway station for Alnwick, this listed building is one of the largest second-hand book shops in England with over 350,000 books in stock. Crackling open fires, over-stuffed armchairs and the model train whizzing along the tracks above your head… this is a bookworm’s paradise.

Drink a cup of Earl Grey tea in Earl Grey’s Howick Hall

The Grey family seat and home to Charles, 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister during the passing of the Great Reform Bill of 1832. He is probably best known for the famous tea which was blended especially for the water at Howick and named after him.
