The brand new Visit Northumberland app has been created following the launch of its Step into Alnwick programme, and the app promotes all things Alnwick, just in time for Christmas. If you’ve ever fancied visiting Alnwick, or are already heading there for The Alnwick Garden Winter Light Trail, the Visit Northumberland app is a one-stop-shop for the best places to eat, drink, shop and explore. The app features a number of offers you can redeem in-store, as well as restaurant discounts, so you can bag some bargains when you go Christmas shopping this year. 

Not to mention, app users have exclusive access to a special competition to win a weekend in Alnwick. All you have to do is download the app, redeem one of the offers in-store, and you will be automatically entered for the chance to win two nights at Hallow and Crux (for up to a family of four), a £100 voucher at The Dirty Bottles pub, and a family day pass to The Alnwick Garden and Lilidorei

So, what kind of things do you have to look forward to in Alnwick and on the app? The traditional, cobbled market town of Alnwick, home to famous Alnwick Castle and the amazing Alnwick Garden, is one of Northumberland’s most beautiful market towns. Cosy pubs and restaurants with open fires such as the “cursed” Dirty Bottles pub and the Black Swan, delis serving locally sourced treats such as Turnbull’s Northumbrian Food and The Cheese Room, and stunning boutique stores such as Hotspur 1364, Robinson’s, Ruby Tuesdays and many more, all feature on the app. The list is endless, so download the app and have a look for yourself. 

Andrew Fox, chair of Visit Northumberland, said, “We are thrilled to have launched the Visit Northumberland app and to be able to promote Alnwick’s outstanding businesses to our visitors in an interactive and user-friendly way. This is just the beginning for the app, which will continue to develop and promote other towns and villages in Northumberland, guiding visitors on the best of the county and what to do once you’re here.” 

Search ‘Visit Northumberland’ in your phone’s app store to download the app now, or head to Visit Northumberland’s website using your phone where you will find a link to download the app.  

Step into Alnwick is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund with the North of Tyne Combined Authority as the lead authority.
