Once we have boarded the coach, we will make our way directly to Alnwick arriving just before 11am. Whether you decide to spend all day in the town, Castle or the Gardens, you are guaranteed to have a fantastic day.
Alnwick Castle is home to the Duke of Northumberland’s family, the Percys, and has been for over 700 years. Combining magnificent medieval architecture with sumptuous Italianate State Rooms, Alnwick Castle is one of the UK’s most significant heritage destinations. In recent years it has also taken starring roles in a number of film and television productions, featuring as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardary in the Harry Potter films, Tranformer’s The Last Knight, and in ITV’s Downton Abbey.
Just outside of the castle walls Alnwick Gardens is one of the most contemporary gardens on earth, with one of the world’s largest tree houses and its own Poison Garden.
If you are wishing to visit the Castle, Garden or both please be aware you will need to book your tickets online, we would not advise booking too far in advance as we need to ensure we have the numbers to make the trip viable. Please ring us 2 weeks before the trip to confirm before purchasing your castle or garden tickets.
After a tiring day, we will board the coach again at 4.30pm to begin our way home dropping off in Darlington first.
