Alnwick Castle

Alnwick Castle

 Alnwick Castle is one of the largest inhabited castles in England.   It is know as "The Windsor of the North." It was built as a medieval fortress, today it is home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and their family.

Hands on fun for children of all ages. Dress as a medieval Knight or Lady and take on the challenges, including Dragon's Quest.

Harry Potter is one of many movies made at Alnwick Castle.

The Alnwick Garden

The Alnwick Garden

 Alnwick is the only place to see a public garden on this scale from internationally celebrated garden designer Jacques Wirtz.  See classic touches from his signature style in the strong green architecture and contrasting spaces and atmospheres, making The Garden beautiful all year round.

Alnwick is a working garden and there's always a tip, trick or nugget of knowledge to take home, or maybe even a new interest or passion.  In the Roots and Shoots teaching garden, all ages get hands-on.

Bamburgh Castle

Bamburgh Castle

Experience the sights, stories and atmosphere of two thousand years of exhilarating history.  this huge whinstone outcrop forced upwards by volcanic activity has witnessed a succession of crowns.

From wooden palisades to the present stone built fortress, the castle has kept watch over the coastline 150 feet below for many centuries.

These formidable stone walls have witnessed dark tales of rebellion, bloody battles, spellbinding legends, millionaire benefactors and ghosts who love this iconic building so much they'll never leave.

Holy Island of Lindisfarne

Holy Island of Lindisfarne

 Holy Island has a rhythm of its own, dictated by the tides.  Accessible only when the tide drops back from the causeway, it has an ethereal quality where nature and history combine to provide refuge for the spirit.

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne has been a place of Christian pilgrimage for 1300 years since St Aidan founded the first monastery in 635AD.  In 793AD Lindisfarne monastery suffered the first recorded Viking raid on English soil.

Holy Island offers a beautiful unspoiled village with a selection of shops, cafes, pubs and hotels.  The 16th century Lindisfarne Castle stands at the northern end of the island guarding the entrance to the harbour. Built in the 1530s as an artillery fort, during the reign of Henry VIII, it was bought in the 1880s by Edward Hudson and restored as a holiday residence.
