What people are saying about Alnwick
We went on a larger tour the day before and much prefer this tour. Large van, great driver, Allan, learned history, saw historical sites, and kids loved Alnwick! They had broom flying lessons and more:).
The quick trip down to Alnwick was great as we had lots of time to explore the castle grounds, gardens, and the tree house all on the same property. Exploring some of the living quarters of the castle was amazing to see how Dukes and Earls have lived throughout history. On top of the that you can see some spots that were used in movies like Harry Potter and Tv's Downtown Abbey.
We drove down to the castle from Edinburgh and had 3 hours in the castle. Paul, our guide, was right it was not enough time as there is so much to see. Missed out on the archery and the broomstick lessons but the castle rooms are magnificent. Only thing that would have made it better would be audio guides. Th drive back to Edinbugh was via the coast, which was really beautiful. Thanks Paul!
