A superb day today as we visit Alnwick Castle & Gardens. The magnificent castle is home to the Duke of Northumberland and has a fascinating history going back 1000 years, up to the modern day as a film location for ‘Harry Potter!’ The multi award-winning gardens only re-opened in 2001 but have been transformed into an exciting contemporary garden with the
centrepiece being the iconic Grand Cascade water feature. Entrance included.
A wonderful excursion today plus we are joined by our excellent local guide for an enjoyable commentary. Taking in the scenic coastline as we head for Lindisfarne – Holy Island. Accessible by vehicle by tidal causeway, learn of the remarkable history of this iconic religious destination. We continue to the stunning Bamburgh Castle – built right on the coast there are
stunning sea views to enjoy whilst inside there is a remarkable collection of artefacts exploring the history of the site. Entrance included.
