Guided tour of Alnwick Castle Grounds
Our day includes an “Alnwick on location” tour where a guide takes us on a cinematic journey around the castle grounds, which have played a part in blockbuster movies, most famously, two Harry Potter films. We also explore the spectacular Alnwick Garden.
Morpeth & Newcastle
A morning in Morpeth, county town of Northumberland and home to a fine castle. The afternoon brings free time in Newcastle.
Bamburgh & Lindisfarne
We call at the charming village of Bamburgh - recently crowned Britain’s favourite seaside resort in a Which? poll. Bamburgh boasts unspoilt beaches, a fairytale castle and a fascinating museum dedicated to Grace Darling - a lighthouse keeper’s daughter who risked her life to save stranded survivors of the wrecked steamship, Forfarshire. Later we move on to Lindisfarne, an isle that is said to be the birthplace of Christianity.
